PHOTO GALLERY: 2016 Tewksbury Memorial Day Ceremony

The weather didn't cooperate but that didn't stop Tewksbury from remembering those who gave everything in the fight for freedom.
Nearly 200 residents packed the Town Hall Auditorium on May 30 for the annual Memorial Day service. A forecast calling for steady rain forced the ceremony to be moved from the Tewksbury Cemetery.
While wreaths could not be laid, those Tewksbury residents who lost their lives in each of America's wars were remembered.
Among the guest speakers at the event were Dennis Francis, a veteran and member of the Tewksbury School Committee, Bruce Panilaitis, chairman of the Board of Selectman, State Sen. Barbara L'Italien and State Rep. Jim Miceli.
Editor Bill Gilman was on hand for the event and put together this photo gallery.
