FRAMINGHAM – Community members and Veterans paid tribute to all those in the armed forces on Veterans Day, yesterday, November 11.
The 2020 holiday was much different than in past year’s due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Members of the Framingham Veterans Council, members of Framingham Police, including newly-named Framingham Police Chief Lester Baker, members of the Fire Department, Framingham Elks members, Veterans, City Councilor Michael Cannon, Charlie Rousseau, and a few members of the public visited several memorials in the City of Framingham on Wednesday morning.
City of Framingham Mayor Yvonne Spicer did not participate. Neither did the City’s Veterans Agent Craig Sullivan. Both instead recorded a virtual ceremony that aired on the government channel at 11 a.m., which included the awarding of Medals of Liberty to fallen Framingham residents.
