Memorial Day 2010


Share post:

Scouts placed flags around Verona's monument to residents killed in World War I.

Dozens of residents marched down Bloomfield Avenue this morning for Verona’s annual Memorial Day parade.

Deputy Mayor Frank Sapienza led the ceremony at the civic center, where he honored the Verona veterans present and two absent guests: His father, a D-Day veteran who was unable to attend this year’s ceremony, and Army Col. John McHugh, a graduate of James Caldwell High School who was killed in a car bombing in Afghanistan on May 18.
