Memorial Day Memories

Former Saugus resident Suzanne Wright and her son Colton, 8, of Danvers, wore their patriotic colors for the Memorial Day Ceremony last Saturday (May 28) at Riverside Cemetery. Colton wore a replica U.S. Naval uniform for history’s sake – to honor the day’s special guest, June “BJ” Farrell, the 77th Commanding Officer of the USS Constitution and the first woman officer in charge during the ship’s 224-year history. Commander Farrell was the keynote speaker at the graveside ceremony for the fallen and also was the grand marshal for this year’s Memorial Day parade.
