The Town of Wellesley will hold Memorial Day Observances on Thursday, May 30 with two ceremonies honoring our departed veterans. 

A ceremony at Woodlawn Cemetery (148 Brook Street) begins at 7 p.m. with a reading of the past year's departed veterans and a salute to the dead. 

Following this program, a second ceremony will take place at the site of the Town's War Memorial on the front lawn of Wellesley Town Hall along Washington Street. 

The schedule of events includes a reading of Wellesley citizens who lost their lives in service to our country, the presentation of the Town's War Memorial Scholarship awards, a reading of the past year's departed veterans and a salute to the dead, along with a Memorial Day speaker and a performance of America the Beautiful, written by Wellesley resident Katharine Lee Bates.

The community is invited to attend. 

*In the event of severe inclement weather, these observances will be moved to the Wellesley Middle School Auditorium and begin at 7 p.m.
