There was a great turnout of people from Waltham and the surrounding area for the annual parade and service on the Memorial Green. The weather stayed kind and it was a very fitting tribute to all our local service personnel who sacrificed their lives in WWI and WWII. Thank you to everyone who helped to make the event run smoothly.
