A note from Patrick George, Veterans’ Services Officer about Memorial Day:

“Watertown Veterans’ Services has created a brief interview series with Veterans, Veterans’ Organizations, and other stakeholders in the community to discuss the importance of Memorial Day. The show will originally air on WCA-TV at noon on Memorial Day, and will be available to view online shortly after that. Although the parade was cancelled, the holiday was not. The Watertown Delta will be lit up gold over the weekend, to reflect Gold Star Families, American flags are also being placed on graves prior to Memorial Day to ensure we never forget the sacrifices those service members made.”

In closing, please continue to keep yourself and others safe by wearing your face coverings, keeping your distance and washing your hands. Know we’re thinking of you, and we hope you’ll check out the Zoom programs. Call us with any questions.

Sincerely,

Anne-Marie Gagnon
