Memorial Day Celebration 2017
Honoring Our Local Heroes
Holly Grove Elementary - Honor, Service, and Sacrifice
The names that you submit of service members who died in any of America's conflicts will find a place of honor on our Memorial Wall. Names of veterans and active duty service members will be placed on banners, by branch, that will be decorated and signed by students along with notes of thanks. You may, if you'd like, send your own small photo and personalized message (together no larger than a 3x5 card) to school to be displayed near your loved one's name. Please write service member's name on any notes or pictures and send only copies please; no original photos.
To submit names: Please gather some information beforehand: name, rank/title, branch, conflict (if the member was killed in action), then follow this link to complete a brief form. You will submit one name per form, but you may submit multiple forms: Deadline to submit names is Monday, May 22nd. We thank you for taking the time to help make this a memorable learning experience for our students. We look forward to honoring our local heroes and hope to see many of you as well on May 26th for this community celebration.
You may view past year's programs on the town's website. Here is one from 2015.
