WREATHS OF REMEMBRANCE
FREMONT – Wreaths of Remembrance will be placed at Arlington National Cemetery as well as at town and city monuments across the United States as a part of the Wreaths Across America Program. Honoring those who have defended our country helps us remember and appreciate their service and our freedom.
On Saturday, December 15, 2018 at 12 NOON, a Wreath of Remembrance will be placed at the Veterans Memorial Monument in front of the Fremont Town Hall. The Peoples United Methodist Church will lead a brief service honoring our troops both past and present. Refreshments will be served in the Town Hall following the ceremony. All are welcome.
This year a special Town Presentation of the Boston Post Cane will also take place on Saturday December 15th, immediately following the Wreath Ceremony. Please join us in this timeless New England Tradition!
