Hundreds lined Main Street in downtown Sarasota on Monday, May 26, to offer grati- tude to the men and women who have given their lives in service to their country. The annual Memorial Day Parade, with its theme, Legacy of Heroes, featured veterans, first responders, color guards, Junior ROTC groups, marching bands, military equipment and local government officials. Following the parade, a ceremony was held at Chaplain J.D. Hamel Park, at the intersec- tion of Main Street and Gulfstream Avenue. It featured Brig. Gen. Frank Laudano, com- mandant of Sarasota Military Academy, as the guest speaker. Staff Photographer Norman Schimmel cap- tured a variety of images from the Memorial Day events.
