Barrington's Memorial Day wreath-laying will be live-streamed

Event planned for Veterans Memorial at town hall

Posted

There may not be a parade in Barrington on Monday, but people are invited to view the annual Memorial Day activities online.

The Barrington United Veterans Council will live-stream its wreath-laying ceremony on Monday, May 25 at 9 a.m. on its Facebook page. The ceremony will open with an introduction and pledge of allegiance, led by Lt. Col. Paul Dulchinos. 

Col. Charles Brule will offer a prayer, and Major Bill Groves will conduct a roll call of deceased veterans. Al Girard will then lower the American flag to half mast, and Mike Tripp, a Marine Vietnam War veteran, will place a wreath at Veterans Memorial.

Lt. Col. Dulchinos will then share the concluding remarks.

All participants in the Memorial Day activities at the Barrington Town hall will follow the appropriate guidelines for social distancing and wearing face coverings.

Earlier this month, Lt. Col. Dulchinos announced that Barrington's annual Memorial Day parade had been canceled in an effort to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

"It is with a heavy heart that I must convey to you all that we will not be having our annual Memorial Day Parade due to the impact of COVID-19 …" Mr. Dulchinos wrote in an email to parade organizers.

"… I want to thank you for your past participation and look forward to returning to normal for next year's event."
