MARLBOROUGH – It’s not every day that the soldiers’ memorial by the First Baptist Church on Mechanic Street has some company.

But on Saturday, June 22, The Volunteer kept watch over several inflatables and families enjoying Carolina red hot dogs.

It was the latest stop of Family Palooza, a free event spearheaded by a group from the Central Church of Dunn, North Carolina.

“They’re helping out churches in MetroWest,” said Logan Loveday, the pastor for First Baptist. “It’s all part of community service.”

The group has been touring several Baptist churches in the area, offering free activities and food. Organizers said they had been staying in Framingham, and they got to visit Harvard University and sample clam chowder.
