But the number of people old and young who took part in the parade and then gathered at the war memorial on Monday morning was still substantial.

With considerable concentration, he noted each person’s answer with a hash mark under a smiley face (for yes) or a frowning face (for no).
The exercise involved interacting with others, basic mathematics and following directions — all challenges for the children in the Region One special education program run by Karen Ianucci at Sharon Center School.
Seven staffers work with 19 students who in terms of chronological age would be in grades pre-kindergarten through eight.

Remembering Sharon’s veterans

SHARON — Memorial Day celebrations have always been important to the town of Sharon, and First Selectman Robert Loucks can attest to that. Loucks grew up in Sharon, marching in the annual Memorial Day parade as a drummer in the Sharon Center School band. Now, a U.S. Navy veteran, Loucks helps organize the day of remembrance. “It’s an important event that people need to be reminded of,” he said. “You know, freedom is not free.” Though towns across the country remember veterans once a year, it is memorials such as the Sharon Veterans Memorial that create a daily reminder.
