TOWN MEMORIAL DAY PARADE
The town’s Memorial Day parade is taking place in Hopkinton Village at 10 AM on Memorial Day, May 28th. The parade will include the VFW Color Guard, the Hopkinton Town Band, veterans from the VFW and American Legion Post 81, Antique cars, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and youth sports teams.
Rob Dapice is organizing the parade this year. If you know of a veteran who would like to march in the parade, please contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org or 603-345-0044. Veterans who cannot walk for health reasons can ride in one of the cars with advance notice. Veterans do not need to wear a uniform. Family members may also join the parade carrying the burial flag of a deceased service member.
Additionally, flags will be placed at each veteran’s grave in all seven of Hopkinton’s cemeteries. If you and your child would like to volunteer to help on Friday afternoon May 25th, please contact Rob.
