Memorial Day is fast approaching. This coming Monday we will take time to remember veterans who have fought in wars, both past and present. Memorial Day celebrations will be happening throughout Vermont. I have listed some events here, and as always, I welcome additions to this list. Simply leave a comment about your event (at a minimum, I will need the where and when of the event) and I will add it to the list asap.
The first event I want to invite you all to will be taking place in Hardwick this coming Saturday (the 29th). My daughter will be marching with the elementary school band beginning at 10AM. Come cheer her on! After the parade, there will be a carnival, craft show, fireworks, BBQs, etc. throughout town. Hope you can make it!
Shameless plug for my daughter put aside, here are some more great events happening throughout Vermont this Memorial Day weekend.
On Monday, May 31st at noon at the Hubbardton Battlefield State Historic Site, flags will be raised and a tribute will be paid to the soldiers of Hubbardton, VT at the battle monument. 12:00 PM
There is a list of parades on Vetfriends.com. They appear to be postings from previous years, but my guess most, if not all, of the towns listed plan these same celebrations annually. http://www.vetfriends.com/Memorial_Day_Parade/directory.cfm?state=VT
