The Ghelli family followed in their Model A Ford, their brother Tommy had plans to restore the now gleaming antique before he entered the army. Thomas Ghelli was killed in action 50 years ago this year.

Vincent Trunfio, commander of the VFW, drove other veterans in the parade.

Selectmen Jay Marsden & Mark Ahronian marched together in the parade and earlier at both cemeteries.

The Police Department was well represented.

The Clan Sutherland Pipe Band made an appearance for a second year.

I am so proud to see the large turn out of Holliston's younger generation. The combined band and all the scouts. This bodes well for the town and the future of our Memorial Day Ceremonies. Thank you all from the Holliston Memorial Day Committee.
