Winterport Memorial 

Mary Newey and her family have been coming to the Winterport parade for years.

Her husband carries the American flag with the veterans, while all of her grand kids join her on the sidelines.

This year’s parade was extra special, as she was joined by her 5-month-old grand daughter, Meredith Ashley Walsh, from Hermon.

Baby Meredith’s father leaves for Air Force basic training on Tuesday.

Newey says watching the parade every year makes her feel very patriotic.

Newey says she’s glad Winterport holds its own parade every year, and hopes they will for many years to come.
