MILLBURN, NJ - Memorial Day kicked off in the heart of Millburn with a flag raising at Town Hall. Members of the Millburn Fire and Police Departments, American Legion veterans, Deputy Mayor Jodi Rosenberg, Committeeman Robert Tillotson, and Board of Education President Emily Jaffe joined members of the U.S. Navy to raise the stars and stripes as the strains of 'Taps' rained down on the assemblage. 

At the conclusion of the flag raising, the groups made their way to St. Stephen's Cemetery for the first of two remembrance ceremonies. Joined by members of the Millburn community and the local boy scout troop, Reverend Sheelagh Clarke and Rick Dority from Millburn's American Legion Guy R. Bosworth Post 140 offered words of remembrance for those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. 

The final remembrance ceremony took place at St. Rose of Lima Cemetery under increasing rains. Father John McCrone joined Dority to render honor and acknowledge the sacrifices of the fallen service members. The Millburn Police Department performed a gun salute at the close of both cemetery services.
