Township Manager Matthew Cavallo and Verona Police Officer Justin Nielsen, a former member of the U.S. Army’s 10th Mountain Division, bring the wreath to Verona’s WWI monument.

A large crowd gathered under bright sunshine in front of Town Hall on Monday morning to commemorate Memorial Day and remember the young men of Verona who gave their lives in service to their country.

The parade from Everett Field to the center of town seemed even larger this year, with numerous scout troops and first responder trucks from Cedar Grove as well as Verona. The invocation was given by the Rev. Jerry Racioppi, rector of The Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit, and the national anthem was sung by members of the Verona High School chorus. VHS student Emily Wynne sang “God Bless America” and fellow student Henry Wertz closed the ceremony with the playing of “Taps.”
