2016 Theme:
Celebrating Natick's Rich History
2016 Grand Marshal: Paul Hasgill
Paul Hasgill

Paul Hasgill will be turning 100 years young on July 5 and to our knowledge is the oldest living citizen in Natick. Paul is a descendent of the Nipmuc Indians. A grandson of a Civil War veteran, Paul Hasgill was raised in Natick. Drafted in December 1942, Hasgill would serve in the U.S. Army as a radio operator in North Africa, Sardinia, Corsica and Italy.
Here is his story link on the Natick Veterans Oral History Project website at the Morse Institute Library.
