Bedford’s Virtual Memorial Day Observance

Editor’s Note: The decision to observe Memorial Day 2021 virtually was made long before the Commonwealth opened fully on May 29.

Thanks to Paul Purchia, chair of Bedford’s Patriotic Holiday Committee; John Cooper who presented an invocation and closing prayer on behalf of the American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars; Margot Fleischman, Chair of the Bedford Select Board; State Representative Ken Gordon; State Senator Mike Barrett; Joe Piantedosi who read the names of Veterans who have died in the past year. Taps were played by Julia and Lorene Simoneau, on the shore of a lake.

Bedford TV for preparing and airing this year’s tribute to America’s fallen heroes.
