On Memorial Day, we remember and honor the men and women who died serving in the military. In Essex Junction, there is a parade today, with proper physical distancing organized by Darrell Langworthy of Mark BBQ. Along with the flags and cars, folks from Matt Lumsdon Real Estate are picking up donations of non-perishable food for Aunt Dot’s Place, a food shelf serving Essex, Essex Junction, Jericho, Underhill, and Westford.
This Memorial Day is different as we also remember the war against the coronavirus, a virus that has killed almost 10,000 US citizens, and hurt our economy, throwing many people out of work. We are thankful for people of goodwill who are working together to help our community.
