WESTBOROUGH – The Westborough Veterans’ Advisory Board and the American Legion wish to thank the 50 people who assisted with the U.S. flag retrieval and cleaning on Nov. 19.

More than 1,500 veterans are interred in the town’s cemeteries. U.S. flags were placed in advance of Memorial Day.

This event took place at the Town Rotary and Midland, Memorial, Pine Grove and Saint Luke’s cemeteries. This culminated this year’s Veterans Day remembrances.

Special thanks are offered to Paul Freeman of the advisory board and the organizations, including the Westborough Police Department, Boy Scouts troops 100 and 382, Girl Scouts, Cubs and Brownies, Knights of Columbus Council 85, National Honor Society, the Advisory Board, American Legion Post 0163 and the Rotary Club.
