City of Beacon’s 155th Commemoration of Memorial Day
May 29 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Memorial Day in Beacon is hosted by the five community veterans organizations at the Veterans Memorial building and is a solemn occasion. We recognize and honor those who, in the words of Abraham Lincoln, gave the last full measure of devotion to our nation. Memorial Day is certainly a day to be with family and friends, to celebrate, to anticipate, and to mourn those who have served our community and nation.

11:00 a.m. in front of Veteran’s Memorial Building (430 Main Street, Beacon, NY 12508): The Public Commemoration will continue at the Memorial Building and will feature a reading of the Gettysburg Address and remarks by a Keynote Speaker.
