REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom. . .  or, in the words of the FoMC,. . . COMMEMORATE our Veterans!

On Saturday, December 15, 2018 at 12:00 PM, Friends of Middleborough Cemeteries will host a Remembrance Ceremony at the Middleborough Town Hall Ball Room. Throughout the day, at the various participating cemeteries throughout town, Remembrance Wreaths will be placed at the gravestones of some of this nation's fallen heroes. We invite you to participate. Contact us at Wreaths@FriendsofMiddleboroughCemeteries.org

2018 is the "Introductory Year" of this new, ongoing FoMC initiative. We want people to learn of this new opportunity, to sponsor wreaths, to volunteer to place & remove the wreaths, and to become inspired to participate in the future. During 2015, 2016, and 2017, volunteers with the FoMC cleaned the gravestones of the 400 Veterans of the Civil War interred in 14 cemeteries. Our goal for this introductory year is to place a Remembrance Wreath at those 400 gravesites. Our goal for 2019, the year of Middleborough's 350th birthday, is to have 100% of Middleborough's interred and remembered Veterans' graves marked with a remembrance wreath. You can be a part of this: Contact us!                               Wreaths@FriendsofMiddleboroughCemeteries.org

Please help us commemorate Middleborough's fallen veterans; by spreading the word of this new, ongoing FoMC initiative, by sponsoring Remembrance Wreaths, by volunteering to place the wreaths, by attending the Remembrance Ceremony, by promoting our event as best you can, and/or by inviting your family and friends to join you in our efforts. What we do depend on you! http://www.friendsofmiddleboroughcemeteries.org/wreaths.html

Thank you for supporting the FoMC in supporting the mission of Wreaths Across America!
