Melrose's community welcomed the families of the crew of the B-25 bomber that plummeted to earth on September 24, 1945, taking the life of the pilot, Major Doak Weston. Five crew members were able to parachute to safety. Pictured on left is State Representative Katherine Clark. On right, Mayor Rob Dolan talks with the ceremony emcee.
