Due to the COVID – 19 Pandemic Memorial Day Ceremonies in the Town of Eden have been cancelled. This includes the Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony at the Evergreen Cemetery.
In solidarity with all Towns in Erie County, the Town of Eden churches along with both fire halls will ring their bells in remembrance of our fallen heroes at 9:00am on Memorial Day, Monday, May 25, 2020.
Newell Faulkner American Legion Post 880 Honor Guard will follow the ringing of the bells with a 21-gun salute and taps at St. Mary’s Church in East Eden and at 10:00am at the Evergreen Cemetery in the Field of Honor. Residents may join the ceremonies but we ask that you follow proper social distancing and not gather after the ceremony.
“As we set today aside to honor and thank our veterans, let us be mindful that we should do this every day of the year and not just one.” –Beth Pennington
