Piermont to dedicate Veterans Memorial Garden on Monday
It will be dedicated on Memorial Day, Monday, May 26, as part of the town’s 250th anniversary celebration.
Area veterans, friends and relatives are being invited to Piermont to march or ride in the 11 a.m. parade with other veterans and local groups, who will make their way to the South Lawn Cemetery, where the garden is located.
Also, there will be comments by Piermont resident and World War II 82nd Airborne Division Paratrooper Joe Medlicott.
During the ceremony, school children and veterans will lay a wreath dedicated to all Piermont veterans who have served since the founding of the town.
The garden will feature three flagpoles donated by Piermont families and three granite memorials marking the names of Piermont military men and women who have served their town, state and country since the French and Indian war and the American Revolution.
At the conclusion of the dedication, lunch will be served at the school.
