Vermont's largest Memorial Day parade, observance

Col. Jeffrey Farnsworth, U.S. Army, a Vergennes native, will follow with the Memorial Day address after being introduced by retired Navy captain and Legion member John Mitchell.

A unit of the Vermont National Guard will conduct a 21-gun salute in honor of those who gave their lives during our nation's wars and conflicts.

Buglers Melvin and Aaron Hawley will then sound taps. The ceremonies will conclude with benediction offered by Rev. Michael Doran, pastor of the Vergennes Methodist Church.

Those who wish to continue the festivities are cordially invited to the annual chicken barbecue under the tent at the Legion post, 100 Armory Lane. The $7 price includes not only the chicken, but also all the fixings and dessert.

For details, call 802-877-9289.
