“Under the circumstances, it was awesome.” – Councilor Wayne Matewsky

Memorial Day in the age of Coronavirus was bit different this year.
Large crowds planting flags and listening to orations did not occur over the weekend.
What happened here Monday, however, showed the resiliency of the local community in its yearly affirmation of honoring those who gave their lives in the service of this nation.
“The respect that was shown under such dire conditions was amazing,” said Councilor Wayne Matewsky, who attended the event at Woodlawn Cemetery.
“So much respect was shown. I cannot recall a more fitting Memorial Day tribute than what was put on by the city at Woodlawn Cemetery. It was unreal,” he added.
A procession of 75 automobiles led by Everett Police began at Everett High School and wound its way to the cemetery.
