Yesterday, many Westporters enjoyed the first real day of summer. The start of a holiday weekend saw Compo Beach packed, the roads filled with bicyclists, backyard grills all fired up.
Meanwhile, Boy Scout Troop 39 was busy remembering the real meaning of Memorial Day.
They placed new American flags at the graves of military veterans, and decommissioned worn flags, at 4 local cemeteries: Assumption on Greens Farms Road, Greens Farms Congregational by the Sherwood Island Connector, Willowbrook on Wilton Road, and Christ & Holy Trinity on Kings Highway North.
It was definitely a good — no, a great — deed.
If you see Troop 39 at tomorrow’s parade, be sure to give them an extra-proud wave.
