We’d like to take this opportunity to thank the many organizations and individuals who helped to make this year’s Memorial Day parade and ceremony in Kingston meaningful and memorable. Thank you to all the parade participants, especially our veterans and Guest of Honor Chief Master Sergeant Joseph M. O'Brien. Additionally, thank you to the Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops, community organizations and Kingston residents and workers who decorated veterans graves in the cemeteries, cleaned and decorated the War Memorials, placed wreaths at Memorials, installed the Kingston Sea of Flags and decorated the Town House. Lastly, thank you to the residents who came, brought their children and supported this important tradition in our town. Kingston is fortunate to have you all as a part of our community.

Note: we apologize in advance for the overload of photos but there are so many people to thank!

Active turtle crossings at the Elm Street bridge area. Please drive slow.Thousands of turtles across Massachusetts will be traveling to nesting sites over the next couple months. If you find a turtle on a road or in your backyard, do not move it far away. If you have the opportunity to safely move a turtle from the road, move it in the direction it was heading just off the edge of the road. ⚠️

PLEASE NOTE: Snapping turtles are fast and have very powerful jaws that can inflict a bad bite. If you must move a snapping turtle, the best way is to use a broom to coax it into a plastic tub/box. A snapping turtle can reach your hands if you lift it by the sides of its shell. Never lift a snapping turtle by its tail, as this can injure their spine.
