Memorial Day is a solemn day to remember and honor
the selfless dedication of service members who have boldly stood in harm’s way
carrying the torch of freedom fighting to protect our abundant way of life.
Please come to the Perkinsville Green, in Perkinsville, Vermont
on Monday, May 28, 2018 at 12 noon
to recognize the men and women who have served us and have passed on.
