Ceremony marches on


Don O’Connor, the Cadigan Post adjutant, said there’s been no discussion about ending the Beverly Farms parade because it involves ceremonies at multiple locations, with descendants of the honored veterans participating.

“How are you going to say to them, ‘We’re not going to come by here any longer, we’re too tired,’” O’Connor said.

O’Connor said the situation is different in downtown Beverly, where the ceremony takes place at one location and few people watch the parade.

“I think it’s going to work out and I think people are going to be a lot happier,” he said.
