REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom. . . or, in the words of the FoMC,. . . COMMEMORATE our Veterans!
Middleborough's 33 cemeteries are collectively supported by one 501(c)(3), Friends of Middleborough Cemeteries. The mission of the FoMC is to "provide assistance" to all the burial places in the town. Not all of the cemeteries in Middleborough have interred Veterans.
On Saturday, December 14, 2019 at 12:00 PM, Friends of Middleborough Cemeteries will be holding the Remembrance Ceremony at the Middleborough Town Hall Ball Room. Throughout the day, volunteers will be at the participating Middleborough cemeteries laying Remembrance Wreaths at the gravestones of some of this nation's fallen heroes and saying their name aloud.
Please help the Friends of Middleborough Cemeteries lay wreaths at as many graves as possible by clicking the red "Sponsor" button. Or, if you would like to volunteer to participate in the wreath laying activity, please send an email to Wreaths@FriendsofMiddleboroughCemeteries.org before clicking the “Volunteer” button below.
Thank you for supporting the FoMC in supporting the mission of Wreaths Across America!

I looked into it and found out more about the organization and the fundraising opportunities. I thought it would be a great community service project for our students.”...
