SHERMAN, Conn. -- Hundreds of folks braved the heat to march in and watch the annual Memorial Day parade in Sherman on Sunday.
Members of the local historical society made a grand showing in period costume.
Local school bands provided the pomp and circumstance with flag-twirlers.
Horses bedecked with red, white and blue ribbons delighted both adults and children.
