The Kingston 2020 Memorial Day parade and ceremony at the city hall has been cancelled due to the ban on gatherings in the state. The organizers will instead hold the event on Veterans’ Day, if guidelines and recommendations at that time allow.
“While we won’t have a public ceremony this year, it is still important for us all to personally pay tribute to those who have lost their lives fighting for our country,” said mayor Steve Noble. “I would also ask that we take a moment to thank all active duty and National Guard members who have stepped up to help during this pandemic. These men and women have bravely seen communities like ours through a scary and uncertain time, and should be commended.”
