Natick will be the site of a series of veterans' celebrations tomorrow.
First, at 11 a.m., the annual Veterans Day parade starts at Lincoln Square (the corner of Union and East Central streets), ending at the Morse Institute Library, at 14 E. Central Street.
Then, at 11:45 a.m., a South Natick square will be dedicated in honor of a fallen soldier. The square at the corner of Everett and Cottage streets in South Natick will be named for Sgt. Thomas Mallery, a Natick High School graduate who was killed in action in Korea in 1953.
The festivities end with a Veterans Appreciation Dinner at 6 p.m. It is for families of active-duty military personnel, veterans and those stationed at Natick Labs. The Natick Veterans Council is sponsoring the dinner, which will be held at the downtown Natick Fire Station, 22 E. Central St.
