Town of Wayne, Maine


Memorial Day Parade

MONDAY, MAY 29, 2017

Plans are set for this year’s Memorial Day Service and We are pleased to announce that Company A, 3rd Maine Regiment Voluntary Infantry (Civil War Re-enactors) will participate in the Observance. The Memorial Day Committee is working with the 3rd Maine and the Maranacook High School and Middle School bands to create an appropriate reflection and observance. Here is the schedule of events:

10:30 a.m. – Veterans, boys, girls, scouts, and anyone with a focus on honoring our veterans should assemble at the Wayne Community Church’s parking lot.

11:00 a.m. – The different groupings will leave the parking lot and go down Main Street to Pond Road  and  back to the Veterans Memorial Stone on Pocasset Lake where a wreath laying ceremony will take place. Then the parade will move to the Veterans Memorial Park where the formal program will continue. If it rains, services will be at the Ladd Center at 11:00 a.m.

12:00 to 2:00 p.m. – A Salute to Wayne Veterans Exhibit at The Williams House, 14 Old Winthrop Road, across from the library.

Transportation will be provided for any veterans who need a ride in the parade. If you are interested in giving veterans a ride in your vehicle, please contact David Ault (685-4578).

The guest speaker is Steven Woodsum, United States Navy Veteran.

ALL veterans are urged to participate in the parade as a tribute to men and women of the town who have served in different branches of the services in the past.

Any questions regarding the Memorial Day Service should be directed to Doug Stevenson (685-9005) or Don Welsh (686-4117).
