Hull will commemorate Memorial Day on Monday

The town's observance of Memorial Day on Monday begins with a parade that steps off from Hull High School at 9:30 a.m. and proceeds to the Village Cemetery, where speeches and music will be staged. Those who wish to march should be at the high school at 9.

All are welcome to walk, or to line the parade route and cheer on participants. At 10 a.m., the ceremony begins at the Gold Star Mothers Memorial.

Afterwards, the town will commemorate two squares in memory of Hull residents who were World War II veterans. The first is at the corner of Main Street and Town Way, to honor Philip Hunt Sr. The second is for Anthony J. Alibrandi, at the corner of Alden Street and Manomet Avenue.

After those, at about noon, the front of the Municipal Building, 253 Atlantic Ave., will be dedicated to the memory of Janet Bennett, the town clerk who served Hull for more than 50 years. All are welcome to participate in or all of these observances.

Band Concert Cancelled. Due to the ongoing updates and construction at the Bernie King Pavilion, the Memorial Day band concert has been cancelled. Organizers hope that the renovations will be completed by July 4 so that the bandstand's summer concert series may begin. Concerts are usually held every Sunday, from 2-4 p.m., through Labor Day.
