Dear Town Residents,
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the restrictions we are following in regards to Commonwealth of Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker's order as well as the recommendation of President Donald Trump, we will not be able to honor our fallen soldiers this year with a Memorial Day Parade so that everyone can stay distanced during this time. In lieu of the Memorial Ceremony and Parade we will be airing through Swansea Local Cable Access Channel a video. Announcements for the video will be added to our town page.
This is still the a day to show respect by praying and honoring these heroes who have passed, however, there will be NO public events or gatherings for this Memorial Day, May 25,2020. As far as the veterans are concerned, we will honor our fallen comrades by placing wreaths, flowers and flags at all of our cemeteries and Veterans Green.
Please keep all our fallen Veterans and First responders in mind during this Holiday.
