Posted

As the Director of Rehoboth’s Veteran Services and the Adjutant for the Rehoboth’s American Legion post 302, I would like to thank everyone who participated in this year’s Rehoboth Memorial Day Parade and all the supporting residents of Rehoboth for coming out to see the Memorial Day Parade on a beautiful sunny day.

The Parade started at 10:15 AM near the C.O.A. & American Legion on Bay State Road and travel through the village following the Red White and Blue Stripped lines in the middle of the road along with 68 American Flags hanging off the utility poles along the entire parade route and ended up at the Veterans’ Memorial Gazebo, Redway Plain.

The Memorial Day Ceremony commence at 11:30 AM followed by a dedication to Larry Procoppio and for all our Fallen Comrades who’ve gave the ultimate sacrifice with a ceremony ending at noon with the raising of the American Flag from half-staff to full staff.
