Sunday saw us take part in our town’s Memorial Day Parade; one of the many community events held throughout the year. The boys were keen to walk with their classmates, so we headed into town to join in.
Memorial Day, which is the last Monday in May, remembers all the men and women who have died while serving in the US armed forces. It was wonderful to see the town turning out to mark the day; as always the strong sense of community spirit was very evident. This was the first time that we had taken part in the parade; all the local schools were represented, there was a traditional Fifes and Drums group, along with a brass band, the High School band and bagpipes! This was in addition to representatives from the army, fire service and police. The main street was lined with people watching.
