Port remembers veterans

War of 1812's bicentennial is focus of speech

Hunt and Holaday placed wreaths at the base of the cemetery’s flagpole and the Newburyport High School band performed “Amazing Grace” and a haunting rendition of Taps.

Among those in the crowd were City Councilors Thomas Jones, Robert Cronin, Kathleen O’Connor Ives and Thomas O’Brien.

Yesterday marked O’Connor Ives’ last parade as a city councilor, as she soon will be sworn in as the First Essex District’s newest senator. City councilors are expected to name a successor to O’Connor Ives shortly.

Asked if she felt any sadness knowing yesterday was her last parade as a city councilor, Ives said it was hard to be sad knowing she’d be back soon marching in city parades, only with a different job title.

“It will just be in a different capacity. These are all my good friends,” she said, pointing to her fellow city councilors.
