Memorial Day Memories

Last Monday, May 27, residents of Westport gathered downtown to honor those who have given their lives for our country. The Police Department, Fire Department, members of the armed forces and many other organizations paraded down the Post Road amidst floats, cars, and army vehicles. The Staples Marching Band participated in the parade, serenading parade-goers with patriotic tunes. Other Staples students participated as members of groups like the Boy Scouts. The crowd was awash in red, white, and blue, decked in flags and colorful clothing. However, the festivities weren’t limited only to people: even some four-legged friends showed their spirit in patriotic garb.
