Rochester Memorial Day Celebration

Rochester fared far better with its Memorial Day celebration than Marion and Mattapoisett did on rainy Monday. Sunday, May 29, was a picture perfect day for a parade. At the Town Hall,  the names of the fallen soldiers were read aloud and the Rochester Memorial School Band played patriotic songs before heading out for the parade. Rochester’s oldest living veteran, Hormidas “Butch” Boucher, was honored as well. Bouchard is 97 and a submarine veteran of World War II.  Photos by Colin Veitch
