Town of Franklin Memorial Day Ceremony on the Town Common - 05/29/23 (audio)

FM #1001 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 1001 in the series. 

This session of the radio show shares the audio of the Town of Franklin Memorial Day ceremony held on the Town Common at the end of the parade on Monday, May 29, 2023. The day was gloriously sunny, with a gentle breeze. The crowd was mostly finding shade and in good voice when required.

Veterans Service Officer Shannon Nisbett is the master of ceremonies and introduces each speaker. A copy of the program in PDF form is listed below.

The ceremony runs about 40 minutes.
