It may have been Westport’s best Memorial Day parade ever.
The weather was perfect. The number of kids marching (and riding) was astonishing. After 2 years of COVID, the feeling of joyful community was palpable
The Veterans Green ceremony was especially meaningful this year. The crowd sang “Happy Birthday” to grand marshal Jean Wells: 105 years old today!
Here’s the first batch of photos, from “06880” readers. Stay tuned for more!
This is the first Memorial Day Parade I have missed since I moved to Westport in 1983. I even drove in too many to count (at least 20).
But I send you all sincere greeting from my new home In Redding, only 20 minutes, but it seems a million miles, away.
Bless your loving, brave heart, Priscilla Long !
