Fort Barton School Makes Annual Visit to Tiverton War Memorial
Many turned out on a rainy Friday for the school's annual Memorial Day Parade.
Fort Barton School students, faculty and members of the public joined Friday in remembering those who have fallen at the World War I Memorial at Grinnell's Beach. Their annual parade made its way down Lawton Avenue for the gathering, and the rain really started to come down only at the conclusion of the gatheriing.
Students sang patrotic renditions of songs, such as 'My Country, Tis of Thee." A wreath was placed at the memorial, honoring the men and woman who have fallen while serving the country. Several students talked about the importance of Memorial Day.
Last year Principal Suzette Wordell talked about how long they've been doing the parade.
