On Memorial Day, members of American Legion Post #126, in Vassalboro, went to each veteran monument and bridge on Oak Grove Road, placed a wreath and played taps. Pictured, from left to right, James Kilbride, Kevin Labrie, Robert Whitehouse and Donald Breton. (photo courtesy of Rachel Kilbride)

With official Memorial Day ceremonies canceled in Fairfield, several people still gathered to honor the fallen heroes at the veterans monuments in Maplewood Cemetery and Fairfield Memorial Park as well as at the river. Pictured, from left to right, are Joshua Fournier who led a prayer while Emily Rowden Fournier, who organized the event, laid wreaths. Army veteran Margaret May Lambert served as colorguard. UMO student Nathanael Batson played taps with LHS band director Loren Fields (not in photo). Chris Batson, pictured, was in attendance with his entire family along with Joe Rowden, back, and several community members. (photo by Lyn Rowden)
