Memorial Day Observances in Wrentham 2017
The annual Memorial Day Parade will take place rain or shine on Monday, May 29th beginning at 10:30 a.m.
The parade will form at 10:00 a.m. on Randall Road where all marching units and vehicles will gather. The parade will step off at 10:30 a.m. and proceed to the Wrentham Center Cemetery where ceremonies will honor all who have made the ultimate sacrifice in order that freedom and the Constitution may be preserved. Following ceremonies at the cemetery, the parade will re-form and proceed to the Wrentham Town Common with brief observances at the war monuments.
All veterans with or without uniforms are invited to participate. Those veterans who have served in the Gulf Wars, Iraq (OIF) and Afghanistan (OEF) are especially invited to join the parade and subsequent observances. Veterans from surrounding communities that do not have a parade are cordially invited to march with us.
Also, at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, May 29th members of the American Legion Post 225 Rifle Squad and Color Guard will pay tribute and lay wreaths to the deceased veterans at memorial sites throughout the town.
Just as in previous years, members of the local Scouting organizations will place flags on veterans’ graves at the various cemeteries on Saturday morning, May 27th beginning at 9:00 a.m. at the Center Cemetery.
Any questions, please call the Veterans Service Officer at 508-384-8333.
