In-front of a jam packed town common, Selectmen John Coutinho described the annual ceremonies on Memorial Day in Hopkinton; "this is Hopkinton, this is the spirit of the fabric of our town and our country." Selectmen Chair Ben Palleiko spoke of the importance of remembering the principals those who have sacrificed in armed forces fought for; "most of us will only briefly past through history and will leave little mark, those covered today by American flags made our history, the story of our nation is genuinely written with their blood, we owe them more. Our obligation is to take this nation forward from where they left it, to remain true to the principals they fought for and strive to do our part to make this a country that we continue to be proud of."
