Needham to Host Rally for Aly Raisman Aug. 26

Celebration for Olympic medalist Aly Raisman is Sunday, Aug. 26.

Aly Raisman will be celebrated next Sunday, Aug. 26, after the Town of Needham today announced the date for a "Rally for Aly."

The rally will begin with a parade starting at 2 p.m. at Town Hall that will head up Highland Avenue to Memorial Park. There, a rally will be held, according to an email from Sandy Cincotta, in the Needham Town Manager's office.

Another in Burlington, at the site of the Needham resident's gym.

How could this have been scheduled mid-day Sunday on one of the last weekends in the summer?

Hi Rachel, I believe town officials wanted to have it on a weekend day, thinking more people could attend than on a week day.

and I believe they had to work with what was good for Aly.

Yes, Karen, that too!
