Residents throughout the Greater New Milford area turned out in the thousands Sunday and Monday for their towns' Memorial Day ceremonies and parades. Top, members of the the Gaylordsville Volunteer Fire Department led by Captain Tom Hogan, left foreground, and Chief Lee Hendrix, bow their heads during a moment of silence. During a lighter moment, above left, Annabelle McLean of Sherman loves every minute of her ride aboard the shoulders of her father, David McLean, as they march in their town's parade. Above right, Amelia Pecha of Girl Scout Troop 40189 and Erik Ulrichsen of Cub Scout Pack 341, Den 3, share the honor of placing the memorial wreath in Warren.
