The morning Memorial Day parade forms on Goen road in New Ipswich. Peter and Bonny Jo Aho have been hosting a coffee and nisu social for the parade participants since 1977.
Nisu is a traditional Finnish Bread, absolutely delicious
What is a parade without a classic car? This VW had a red, white and blue surfboard.
