This year’s ceremony will feature a keynote address, given by retiring Wayland High School History Department Head and treasured local historian, Kevin Delaney.
The Wayland Memorial Day Ceremony – hosted by the Wayland Public Ceremonies Committee – will be held outside (rain or shine) at 11am on Monday, May 31 at Lakeview Cemetery (80 Commonwealth Road, Wayland). The parade has been canceled due ongoing pandemic restrictions.
The ceremony, remembering and honoring those who have died in service to our nation, will begin with welcoming remarks by Richard P. Turner, USN RET, Chair of the Public Ceremonies Committee, followed by an invocation. The keynote address will be given by retiring Wayland High School History Department Head and treasured local historian, Kevin Delaney.
The National Anthem will be performed by Wayland’s own Victoria Gitten. The Wayland High School and Middle School bands will pay tribute with patriotic music followed by Echo Taps and a Rifle Salute by the American Legion Post #133.
We welcome all who can attend and thank participants for complying with COVID-19 Executive Orders and CDC guidance for health and safety. We also invite those unable to attend in person to view the recorded ceremony on WayCAM.
