Vale will observe Memorial Day at 10:30 a.m., May 25th with a formal ceremony. Taps, a flag raising, and the National Anthem will be on the program. Veterans’ groups representing all military branches will participate. Local dignitaries will speak briefly at the Veterans’ Plot. Participants will assemble at Vale’s main entrance at 907 State St.
Since 1866 we have honoured the memories of our loved ones who have served in all the wars and most especially, those who made the ultimate sacrifice to our country. It is also a time to remember departed friends and family.
Again this year, Vale is offering to plant potted red geraniums (three plants per pot) on specified graves, which will last through the summer. The FIRST POT purchase is $35 and each additional pot is $25. The price includes the planting and careful maintenance of the entire plot. Two or more plots are recommended.
