Twenty people, maybe.

That's all Nicholas Paganella was expecting would sign on for last year's Memorial Day bus trip to Massachusetts National Cemetery in Bourne.

He couldn't believe it when the phone started ringing off the hook.

This year, 100 people -- mostly World War II veterans -- are going and organizers had to turn away dozens more.

Patriotism is alive and well in Framingham, Paganella says in today's Globe West.
