WEST WINDSOR: Memorial Day message about freedom, sacrifice and responsibility
Under warm, sunny skies that belied the somber nature of Memorial Day, West Windsor Township honored the soldiers, sailors and airmen who gave their lives in American military conflicts Monday morning.
Led by the West Windsor Township Police Department’s honor guard, marchers in the annual parade made their way along Clarksville Road from West Windsor-Plainsboro High School South to the Municipal Building. Spectators lined the parade route, some of them waving American flags.
The marchers included a handful of veterans and some political figures, including U.S. Rep. Bonnie Watson-Coleman. Children and their parents, some of whom represented youth sports organizations as well as Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, made up the rest of the parade.

Justin Guarini is starring in a Sondheim classic at Bucks County Playhouse
IT’S hard to believe it’s been 13 years since a fresh- faced Justin Guarini was battling it out with Kelly Clarkson in the finals of American Idol in the show’s debut season, but it was all the way back in 2002 when the singer first caught the attention of America.
What a lot of people don’t know is that Mr. Guarini almost didn’t appear on the show, having been offered a role on Broadway in The Lion King.
”I was at a real crossroads back then. I could do my first Broadway show or do this TV show that no one ever heard of and go out to Hollywood and sing,” he says. “I had a week to decide and so I went out to California and kept advancing so I had to thank them for the opportunity and I stuck with the show.”
