Memorial Day 2022 — Gallery #2

Here’s the second batch of photos from today’s great parade.

A third set — including the very moving ceremony on Veterans Green — will come in a few hours. Right now, I’m heading to one of the many parties in town. I’m off the clock!

Whether the Sunrise Rotary Club asked for a color-coordinated vehicle to advertise their upcoming Duck Race is unclear. But it sure looks cool. (Photo/Mark Mathias)]

The Bedford and Coleytown Middle School bands marched together. They sounded great! (Photo/Janette Kinnally)

Seeing this crowd watching from above Capuli restaurant reminded Russell Sherman of his days as a kid here. Youngsters watched from atop buildings on the Post Road and — when the route went another way — Main Street. (Photo/Russell Sherman)

 

The RTM is supposed to announce all upcoming meetings. So this may have been illegal. But it sure was fun. Other RTM members marched with the Suzuki Band; League of Women Voters; Rotary Clubs; soccer, baseball and lacrosse teams — and probably others. (Photo/Will Haskell)

  2. Dan, Sometimes your posts make me a little homesick! I certainly recognize all those places. Have a wonderful Memorial Day to you and all your readers and hopefully soon, I can come back to town. Once a Westporter, always a Westporter!
