All are welcome to take part in the motorcade. Town monuments, municipal buildings and Veterans’ graves will be decorated with new American flags. Also, the parade route will be fully dressed, proudly displaying our country’s flag.

Weather is always a factor in planning a parade. If the Memorial Day committee determines the weather is not suitable to march, the ceremonies will be held at the American Legion Post No. 247 on Pawtucket Blvd at 12:00 noon. Notification of any cancellation will be posted.

Tyngsborough Police taking part in National “click it or ticket” campaign

Chief Richard Howe is pleased to announce that the Tyngsborough Police Department is taking part in the national Click It or Ticket campaign to promote seat belt use through increased traffic enforcement.

The initiative is organized through the Massachusetts Highway Safety Division of the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security and will continue through May 29th.

“More people buckling up means more lives saved, so we think it is important to step up enforcement as more people hit the road,” Chief Howe said. “Our officers will be out enforcing the seat belt and child passenger safety laws so that fewer people are needlessly injured or killed in crashes in Tyngsborough.”

According to the state’s annual seat belt observation study, Massachusetts seat belt usage is significantly lower than the national average – 78 percent compared to 90 percent. Additionally, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that out of the 172 people killed in motor vehicle crashes in the Commonwealth in 2015, 64 percent were not wearing seat belts.

Tyngsborough is one of approximately 200 local police departments in Massachusetts, along with the Massachusetts State Police, to participate in the high-visibility mobilization.
