Wellington and the American Legion Post 390 – Wellington will honor all veterans with a Memorial Day Ceremony on Monday, May 31st at the Veterans Memorial, located on the corner of Forest Hill Boulevard and South Shore Boulevard. Veterans, their families and loved ones, and all members of the community are invited to attend. 

The ceremony begins at 8:30 AM and will feature a Gold Star Memorial Dedication sponsored by the Wellington Garden Club. The Gold Star Memorial represents families of service members who have lost their lives during service. The Wellington Garden Club raised the funds to install the marker at the Veterans Memorial and will unveil the marker during the Memorial Day Ceremony. 

If you are an active or retired veteran, you will have an opportunity to register at the Wellington tent, on the morning of the event, to be recognized during the ceremony. To become a part of this event, please contact Michelle Garvey, Assistant Community Services Director, at (561) 791-4082.
