Wayland Honors All Who Served with 2020 Outdoor Veterans Day Ceremony

The Wayland Veterans Day Ceremony – hosted by the Wayland Public Ceremonies Committee – will be held outside (rain or shine) at 11:00am on Wednesday, November 11, 2020 at the Wayland Veterans Memorial (Wayland Town Building, 41 Cochituate Road, Wayland, MA).

The program 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 Wayland resident and LT Col USAF RET, Michael Patterson, a pilot who flew 313 combat missions over Laos and North Vietnam.

The National Anthem will be performed by Wayland’s own Tori Gitten and the posting of colors will be made by American Legion Post 133. The names of those that appear on the Memorial – who paid the ultimate sacrifice for the Town of Wayland and their country – will be recognized, followed by a gun salute and wreath-laying ceremony.

We welcome all who can attend and thank participants for complying with COVID-19 Executive Orders and CDC guidance for health and safety, including social distancing and face coverings. We also invite those who are unable to attend to view the recorded ceremony on WayCAM.
