Westborough – Roughly two dozen painted rocks formed the shape of the American flag at the Westborough War Memorial, May 29.

Set at the foot of a flagpole bearing the full US flag, the handmade tribute sat in the middle of a space made uncharacteristically quiet by the coronavirus this year.

Memorial Day came and went on Monday without traditional parades and somber ceremonies. Such gatherings, experts warned, would be unsafe in the current conditions.

That did not stop many communities and their residents, however, as evidenced by this flag decoration, from finding creative ways to still honor fallen soldiers.
