Memorial Day parade and observance Monday

This year’s Memorial Day parade & observance will be held on Monday, May 27. The parade will muster in the parking lot of Our Lady of Assumption Church at 8:15 a.m. Once assembled, the parade will march to the South Burying Ground on Salem Street and then to the Willow Cemetery on Summer Street. Ceremonies will be conducted at each location. The parade will then return to the South Lynnfield Fire Station for a brief recess.
The parade will reassemble at the Middle School at 10:00 a.m. and will march to the West Burying Ground, Old Burying Ground, and Forest Hill Cemetery. Ceremonies will be conducted at each location. The parade will then march to the Meeting House and common for final ceremonies to begin at approximately 11:00 a.m. This year’s featured speaker will be newly elected Planning Board member and twenty-year retired Air Force Major Thomas Wallace. Our celebration will include music and a cook-out at the conclusion of the ceremony on the common. We hope to conclude all activities by 1:00 PM. All veterans and residents are encouraged to participate in some or all of the ceremonies.
In case of heavy rain, the ceremony will be held in the Middle School Auditorium at 11:00 a.m.
Lynnfield’s American Legion Post 131 will be on site and donations may be made to them after the ceremony.
