On Memorial Day, Southborough residents honored the town’s veterans, especially those lost in battle.

I’m sharing my photos from the parade and ceremonies.

As usual, the parade passed through downtown and then wound its way through cemeteries and war memorials. The parade was made up of veterans, officials, scouts, and the Trottier Middle School Band. Adding to its length was a train of residents following along to help remember late veterans.  VFW Commander Steve Whynot and American Legion Post Commander Dan Kolenda led ceremonies at the Rural Cemetery, Old Burial Ground, Civil War Monument, and the All Wars Memorial.

Participants also included ARHS students performing Taps on trumpets and singing patriotic songs.

Here are my photo highlights*:
