Several hundred people attended Groton’s Memorial Day ceremonies in the Groton Cemetery this morning. The ceremonies were the highlight and mid-point of the town’s annual parade, which was viewed by a large crowd basking in bright sunshine. Major General Craig Olson, USAF, from Hansom Air Force Base was this year’s parade Grand Marshal and the primary speaker of the event, which honored veterans of the Korean conflict this year.
