Veterans Day Ceremony this morning

Southborough's annual parade and ceremony is today

Reminder: The public is invited to take part in today’s official observances marking Veterans Day in Southborough.

[Editor’s Note: Downtown construction work I previously noted could have make getting to the event more complicated has been postponed.]

Following tradition, the Veterans Day ceremony is held at the All Wars Memorial on the Common. It is preceded by a parade from the the American Legion & VFW Post Headquarters (at the Community House, 27 Common Street).

The parade is comprised of veterans, representatives from the Board of Selectmen, and town scouts. (Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts are all invited to march.)

The parade participants begin gathering at 10:15 am. The procession starts at 10:45 am.

The community joins them at the Town Common for the ceremony beginning at 11:00 am to honor our country’s veterans and service members. (That’s the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.) The 30-40 minute event remembers our fallen and honors those who serve today and all those who have served our nation. It includes readings and patriotic music, gun salutes, and the playing of Taps.
