US Memorial Day Service and Wreath Laying

30 May @ 11:00 am - 11:20 am

An annual open air Civic Service with The Mayor of Weymouth, Cllr Ann Weaving leading the ceremony and laying a wreath on behalf of the Town.

All welcome to attend.  Many local veterans, Association representatives and residents will be present and expressing their respect for the US personnel who served and died during World War II and to recognize the many hundreds of thousands of US personnel who left the ports at Weymouth and Portland for D-Day 1944.

Memorial Day is a federal holiday in America, commemorating those who have died in military service for their country.

The US Memorial is located on The Esplanade adjacent to the Royal Hotel and was unveiled on 3 December 1947.  It was rededicated in June 1999 and further renovation work was carried out in 2012 by a local stonemason.
