Memorial Day Parade 2019
The 2019 Memorial Day Parade and ceremony was an exceptional success! The large participation from the residents and participants in the parade from Rehoboth was tremendous. The size of this year’s parade was the largest that I’ve seen since I’ve been Rehoboth Veterans Service Officer. The ceremony conducted at the Rehoboth Veterans’ Memorial was one the best in the last 4 years and the Rehoboth resident’s commitment added to its overall success. Honoring our fallen Soldiers and their families is the true meaning of the Holiday.
The town of Dighton’s Selectmen made a move mid-June to keep their town parades in Dighton and they would use their Middle School band for their towns marching band and Rehoboth can use the D-R Marching Band for the Rehoboth’s parade. On June 18th I concurred with their decision so the town of Rehoboth can maintain consistency on a yearly basis.
Your participation was greatly appreciated
