Islanders observe Memorial Day
About 200 people gathered in Stonington for an hour-long Memorial Day program that was organized by the Rodney Stinson Post #102 of the American Legion. Filling the Opera House to near capacity, residents gathered to hear stories and song by past service members and local residents, while paying their respects to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice to their country.
