Westborough remembers its veterans

Westborough – The town commemorated Memorial Day, Monday, May 28, with a parade and ceremonies held at each of the town’s war monuments. Kenneth Ferrera, the town’s Assistant Veterans Agent, served as Master of Ceremonies for the day while John Matson and the late Stephen Sullivan were honored as the parade’s Grand Marshals. Here are some images and a slideshow from Community Advocate contributor Christopher Weigl of the day:
