One of the best ways to observe Memorial Day is by attending a local parade, and there is one right here in Barre! The parade welcomes any veteran to participate (if transportation is necessary, please come to the Barre Aud) and will end with a ceremony at the Barre City Park, where military songs will be played by local school bands. Afterwards, there will be a luncheon on Elm Street, which is hosted by the Barre Elks Lodge.
Happy Memorial Day!
