On this Memorial Day, we encourage you to take some time to remember our U.S. Soldiers that died in military service. The small town of Londonderry, N.H., does just that in a big-time way. This close-knit, proud New England community traditionally conducts an impressive Memorial Day service that really captures the meaning of this important day.

Today, American Legion Post 27 will hold their annual Memorial Day parade and ceremony in Londonderry (Monday, May 31st), starting at 10 a.m. Here is some more information on this Memorial Day Observance event .

The Londonderry Hometown Online News recently -- and thoughtfully -- contributed a marvelous Memorial Day Observance-Londonderry article to Writer Joe Paradis wrote a tremendous article and editor Steve Young took some phenomenal photos. Check it out by clicking on the link in this paragraph.

Ravens' Nest Restaurant Opens in Walpole, Mass.

The Raven's Nest , an Irish pub located in Walpole, Mass., opened to crowds of locals on Thursday, May 20, 2010.

The site of the former Barleycorn and Paddock bars, the Raven's Nest features a beautifully renovated, welcoming look from the hanging flower baskets on the outside to the high post-and-beam ceiling, and individually hand-painted bricks on the inside walls. The contemporary Irish-American cuisine includes old standbys like Shepherd's Pie and fish n' chips, and chef-created versions of wild mushroom ravioli, hand-tossed specialty pizzas and Creole Jambalaya with blackened chicken, shrimp, sausage, scallions, tomatoes and okra in a creole broth.  With 16 beers (many high quality on-tap offerings) and a handsome bar and dining room that recreate the look of an authentic Irish pub, the family-friendly Raven's Nest promises to be a dining staple in the southwest suburban Boston area.

The Raven's Nest owners also operate the Mad Raven Irish pub in Waltham, MA. For the full story on the Raven's Nest, please click the link above.
