It was so cold Saturday morning, North Kingstown cancelled its Veterans Day Parade. But despite the 39 degree temperature at 10 a.m., the East Greenwich Veterans Day Parade stepped off as usual from Academy Field, making its way to the war memorial on First Avenue, down Main Street and ending at Town Hall.
Grand Marshal Lucy Amat, WWII veteran, has not missed an East Greenwich parade since started as chaplain for American Legion Post 15. And the cold wasn’t going to stop her from missing this one.
American Legion Post 15 Commander John Holmes served as master of ceremonies.
