Wellington and the American Legion Chris Reyka Memorial Wellington Post 390 will honor all veterans with a Memorial Day Ceremony on Monday, May 30th. Veterans are invited to walk in a Memorial Day Parade beginning at 8:15 am at Wellington's Village Hall, located at 12300 Forest Hill Boulevard. The parade ends at Wellington’s Veterans Memorial, located on the corner of Forest Hill Boulevard and South Shore Boulevard, and will be followed at 8:30 am by the Memorial Day Ceremony.
Wellington has also partnered with the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration to thank and honor our Vietnam Veterans. This includes personnel who were held as prisoners of war or who were listed as missing in action for their service and sacrifice on behalf of the United States and to thank and honor the families of those veterans on this 50th year of remembrance. Wellington received a proclamation and has been deemed a commemorative partner for this division of the Department of Defense.
If you are an active or retired veteran attending the ceremony, you will have an opportunity to register the morning of the event at the Wellington tent to be recognized during the ceremony. To become a part of this event or to walk in the parade, please contact Michelle Garvey at (561) 791-4082.
