Southborough will remember its veterans on Monday with the annual Memorial Day parade. The parade starts at 9:00 am at 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 Southborough’s cemeteries old and new. The route will also stop at each of the town’s war memorials to honor and pay tribute to Southborough men and women who have worn the uniform in service to our country. A Trottier student will present the Gettysburg Address at the Civil War Monument in honor of Southborough residents who paid the ultimate price.
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, local politicians, and the Trottier and Algonquin marching bands. All veterans, especially those who have recently returned from service in Iraq, Afghanistan or any deployment in service to our nation, are welcome to march in the parade.
