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 14, 2019 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 was the "Introductory Year" of this new, ongoing FoMC initiative. 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
