March to the Sea honors fallen soldiers

In a moving ceremony Friday, Tisbury School students and Island citizens initiated the Island’s Memorial Day weekend observances.


A crowd of enthusiastic family and friends lined Main Street in Vineyard Haven on Friday afternoon as Tisbury School students and teachers paraded by on their annual March to the Sea to commemorate Memorial Day. When the procession arrived at Owen Park, students walked out on to the town dock in single file, and one by one tossed a flower into the water in honor of those who have given their lives for their country.
