In Solemn Remembrance




Communities across the East End paid their respects to the nation’s war dead at Memorial Day observances. In Sag Harbor, the annual parade led from the World War I monument at Otter Pond, down Main Street to Marine Park, where James Laspesa, an Air Force veteran, delivered the keynote address. In Bridgehampton, community members gathered at the war monument on Ocean Road. Volunteers decorated graves in East Hampton cemeteries before the annual parade down Main Street to Hook Mill.
