Ashfield Memorial Day Service

The Mohawk High School Band joined the Ashfield Town Band in Memorial Day Services. The service started in front of a large crowd at the Ashfield Town Hall and Fire Station.



The band then joined the parade marching down Main Street.


Mr. Halligan directed the combined bands in playing the Star Spangled Banner at the Plain Cemetery on Baptist Corner Road.

Mr. Halligan wrote on his Class Pages about Memorial Day: "It is our honor and privilege to pay tribute to those who have made sacrifices for our country. "
