Memorial Day

By Myleigh Illingworth

Memorial Day is a federal holiday and is observed on the last Monday in May. It was also called Decoration Day.  On Memorial Day people place flowers on the graves of relatives and flags on the graves of soldiers who died in any war. In Bellows Falls the Middle School Band marches and plays at the Memorial Day ceremony.  So if you have never been you should go down to the Waypoint Center at 10am to listen to the band and speeches.
