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.

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.

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.

A note of Thanks and Appreciation to all that helped replace all of the flags on the graves of our Veterans last night. It was one of the largest turn outs we have had with a great representation by the Boy Scouts of Troop 92 and Troop 1…as well as the Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts and residents.

There were families – individuals that just wanted to participate and friends that wanted to be part of this honored tradition.

On behalf of the Veterans of VFW 3276 and Legion 161…

THANK YOU ALL for joining with us.

Thank you to all the service men and women past and present that fight every day so we can live free. I am out of town so I cannot attend our rememberance but will think of the veterans who have fought for everyone on this day. Thank you.

On behalf of the Veterans from Southborough – Thank you to all who lined the streets and attended our Memorial Day Observances. Miz – Charlie and Mrs. Foley ensured we had a picture perfect day to Honor our Veterans. From the Buglers who did a very nice job – to the young ladies from Algonuin Regional High that sang so beautifully – to our young Boy Scout Justin Bai who presented the Gettysburg Address….an Observance which well provided the Honor that this day deserves. Continue to keep our men and women serving – in your thoughts as we go about our lives in the Freedom they protect.
