Memorial Day Ceremony

Liberty at Faneuil Hall

The Seekonk Veterans Council, in conjunction with the Seekonk Department of Veterans Services, will be holding a Memorial Day weekend ceremony.  It will take place at the Seekonk Veterans Memorial Park (410 Newman Avenue) on Saturday, May 29th at 11:30am.

The ceremony will be socially distanced and will be filmed, so it may be viewed on cable television or Channel 9’s website.  It will also be live streamed online by Channel 9 so viewers will be able to watch the ceremony live.

Guest speakers include U.S. Representative Jake Auchincloss (USMC Veteran) and Massachusetts Representative Steven Howitt.  We are pleased to announce that Seekonk poet Margie Rieske will join us once again to read one of her poems.  She writes on all sorts of topics, but really specializes in poems relating to veterans and patriotism – as she comes from a long line of family members who served in the military.

We will also have a special music guest, the 215th Army Band’s Music Performance Team Liberty.  We’ve had the pleasure of having their fife and drum group, Revolution, perform in past years.  This will be Liberty’s first time performing in Seekonk.  They will also be sending us a bugler for the sounding of Taps.

For any additional information or questions, please contact Seekonk Veterans Services at (508)336-2940 or via email jlaflame@seekonk-ma.gov.
