Southborough will remember its veterans on Monday with the annual Memorial Day parade. The parade starts at 9:00 am at the Marlboro Saving Bank at the corner of East Main and Newton Streets. Veterans are asked to meet at the Legion/VFW Headquarters at the Community House at 8:15 am.
The parade will wind down Main Street and through the Rural Cemetery, Burnett Cemetery, Revolutionary War Cemetery, and the Civil War Memorial, with a final stop at the All Wars Memorial in the town common. This year is the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War, so the observance will include a special tribute to those from Southborough who were lost during that war.
Veterans of VFW Post 3276 and American Legion Post 161 will lead the parade, followed by members of the Southborough Men and Militia, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and the Algonquin Regional High School Band.
