MEMORIAL DAY REMEMBERANCES AND PARADE


The 2024 Memorial Day Remembrances and Procession will take place on Monday, May 27, 2024 starting at 9:00 a.m. in front of the Music Hall at 164 Front St, Marion. In the event of rain, the event will be relocated to the Multipurpose Room of Sippican Elementary School.  

The 2024 procession and remembrances will follow same route as in past years, stepping off from the Music Hall northbound on Front Street, marching 0.6 miles up Front Street to the Veterans’ Memorial at Old Landing.  Upon arrival at the Veterans’ Memorial the town will pay tribute to our military’s “honored dead” who “gave the last full measure of devotion”. 

The procession and remembrances will feature the Sippican School Marching Band led by director Hannah Moore as well as The Portuguese American Band. The ceremony will conclude with members of the Select Board laying a wreath at the Veterans’ Memorial.  The master of ceremonies for the event will be Technical Sergeant Mandy Givens of the Massachusetts Air National Guard.  

The featured speaker is Charles A. (Charlie) Brown, a resident of Marion since the early 1990s.  Mr. Brown enlisted in the United States Army in January 1966 but was quickly selected for Officer Candidate School, a 24-week program at Ft. Benning, Georgia upon completion of which he was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in December 1966. In June of 1966 Lieutenant Brown was transferred to Vietnam and assigned to the First Cavalry Division Airmobile, with 430 helicopters that were their rides into battle.  He was combat wounded in December 1966 and again in January 1967.  Then, in January of 1968 his Division was flown just north of Hue and defended against the North’s Tet Offensive.  Following nine months in the field, Lieutenant Brown was transferred to the battalion headquarters.  On May 5, 1968, the battalion was attacked and partially overrun.  Lieutenant Brown received his third Purple Heart and the Silver Star for actions leading his troops in defending the headquarters. In the years since, Mr. Brown has spent an extensive amount of time supporting his combat brothers, their families, and the families of our fallen.  After his military service he had a 25-year career in technology and nine years dealing in Asian Antiques.  He also served nine years as an emergency medical technician.  Mr. Brown is married to his wife Carol and has three grown children. 

Residents are encouraged to attend the remembrances as well as stand along the parade route on Front Street between Cottage Street and Ryder Lane.


Town of Marion Announces 

New Clothing Donation Box 

The Town of Marion would like to inform residents it has partnered with St. Pauly Textile, Inc., to provide a wood-frame clothing drop-off shed for community use.

The collection shed is located behind the Elizabeth Taber Library at 8 Spring St and was installed during the first week of April. This shed is designed to give community members a clean, convenient, and well-kept option to donate used clothing.

Accepted items include clothing, shoes, belts, purses, blankets, sheets, curtains, pillowcases and stuffed animals. Both used and new items are accepted. Donations must be placed in tied-up bags before being left in the shed. 

The shed is accessible any time of the day, and will be emptied weekly. 

The Town will receive funding for donated clothing and additionally has the option to use donations to serve community needs.

"We're excited to present this opportunity to community members to de-clutter during spring cleaning while also giving back to those in need," said Town Administrator Geoffrey Gorman.

St. Pauly Textile, Inc., partners with businesses and organizations to collect and distribute donated items to those in need in the U.S. and 44 countries. It collects more than 150,000 total pounds of clothing each day at more than 1,400 drop-off sheds.
