Memorial Day Remembrance

May 27 @ 9:00 am

Memorial Day gives Americans an opportunity to remember our fallen heroes from all branches of the military. Approximately 1.3 million service members paid the ultimate price for the welfare of America. Congress passed the Uniform Holiday Act in 1968, and in 1971, Memorial Day was declared a federal holiday, recognized every year on the last Monday of May.

We are fortunate to live in a country liberated by men and women we do not know. Those war heroes did not get the opportunity to grow old with their country. Let us not forget them!

Join fellow residents and township leaders to pay tribute to those fallen men and women with a four-stop continuum of salutes throughout the Hill.

The first three stops will be short, followed by a brief outdoor service at the Richwood United Methodist Church Cemetery:
0900: Mullica Hill Baptist Church, 18 S Main St
0915: Harrison Township Old Town Hall, 62 S Main St (by the Christmas tree)
0930: William Wilt Memorial, William Wilt Soccer Complex, 162 Walters Rd
1000: Richwood UMC, 104 Richwood Road, Richwood, NJ

You can pay tribute to someone who has served or is currently serving in the military by ordering a memorial brick. These bricks will be added to the William Wilt Memorial. More information can be found here.
