Lest We Forget What This Holiday Is All About

Cheshire’s annual Memorial Day wreath-laying ceremony is Saturday at 10 a.m. on the Town Green.

In addition to the wreath laying, the ceremony will also feature speeches from Army Lt. General Richard Formica, who is a 1973 graduate of Cheshire High School. Formica will be Grand Marshal of Sunday's Memorial Day Parade in Cheshire.

 A parade of color guards that includes veterans, the Police and Fire Departments as well as Girl and Boy Scouts, will open the ceremony, which will last about a half hour.

 Last year's ceremony attracted about 200 people, according to officials with the Cheshire Veterans Council. The group, which consists of American Legion Post 92, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 10052, Army Air Force Round Table, Disabled American Veterans, and AmVets is the sponsor for Saturday's ceremony.
