Memorial Day Ceremony
Veterans Memorial Park
Friday, May 27, 11 a.m.
Americans celebrate Memorial Day the last Monday in May,
to remember the men and women of the armed forces
and give thanks for their sacrifices. Originally known as
Decoration Day, the holiday dates back to the 1860s when it was a day of remembrance for those who died during the
Civil War. By the 20th century, it had become a general day
of commemoration for fallen veterans of all American wars.
Join South Burlington’s Veterans Memorial Committee as they commemorate the brave soldiers who gave their lives for our freedom.
