The Lynnfield Moms’ Group will sponsor a Veterans’ Day car parade. At 10 a.m. on Veterans’ Day, the participants will assemble in their vehicles in the parking lot of the Our Lady of Assumption Church on Salem Street. At approximately 10:15 a.m., they will proceed to the Lynnfield Housing Authority on Ross Drive.

“I encourage all residents to join the parade, or to show your support along the route,” said Siegel. “Remember to decorate your vehicles.”
Siegel encouraged the community to attend the Veterans’ Day ceremony and parade.
“Veterans’ Day is a celebration of the brave men and women who have dedicated their lives to protecting us,” said Siegel. “It is incumbent upon us to spend some time showing our appreciation.
