ROCKLAND — Rockland American Legion Post 1 will be conducting a Memorial Day Ceremony in Rockland on Monday, May 31, 2021. The ceremony will be held in the park at the corner of Park and Main streets in the shadow of the giant flag pole of the Civil War monument.
Leading up to the 10 a.m. ceremony, Marlene Hall's Bay Winds North music ensemble will be playing appropriate musical selections commencing at 09:45. They will also be providing music during the ceremony, including a very moving version of Taps done with an echo.
“Please take this opportunity to reflect upon the lives and courage of brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice and the families who still mourn their loss,” said the Winslow-Holbrook-Merritt American Legion Post No. 1, in a news release. “All are encouraged to attend this solemn ceremony honoring those who, with their lives, guaranteed the freedoms that we enjoy today. Please encourage others to take a moment out of their busy schedules in support of this ceremony and the true meaning of Memorial Day."
