Remembering the fallen in Blue Hill
Hundreds gathered along Main Street in Blue Hill for the annual Memorial Day festivities on May 28. Veterans marched alongside each other, along with the George Stevens Academy band and various local organizations, in memory of the military personnel lost in battle. The Rev. Gary Brinn of the First Congregational Church of Blue Hill presided over stops at the Mills Bridge and Early Settlers Cemetery, reciting a prayer for the fallen. A firing squad sent off three shots at both sites in memoriam.
