Barrington Town Council DISSES Veterans Group

March 7, 2022. Patriots – The Barrington Town Council tonight voted to strip the Barrington United Veterans Council from running its annual Memorial Day Parade this year.  The BUVC has been running the parade in Barrington since its formation in 1954 – rain or shine to honor those men of its ranks that made the ultimate sacrifice.  This appears to be retribution for the BUVC having previously taken a stance against flying a BLM flag over its Veterans Memorial.  The Town Council has now decided to politicize this solemn event which they characterized as “kicking off the Summer Season”.  They passed a motion instructing the Town Manager to run the parade and then specified that their own hand picked Master of Ceremonies be placed in charge.  Whose wife happens to be a local School Committee Member of their same political party.  Although he is a Veteran, he has never been a member of our organization nor has he ever participated in any of our previous activities.  This was a slap in the face for all those who have faithfully served this community from our organization over the last 68 years.

This move was an insult to the BUVC and further exposes that the Barrington Town Council desires to continue its War on our Veteran Community.  This is a very dark day in the history of Barrington.
Thank You for all your past support –
Paul Dulchinos
Barrinhgton United Veterans Council and Coalition President
