Memorial Day Ceremonies

Monday, May 30, 2022

These events are organized by the local VFW in collaboration with Amesbury Veterans' Services.

07:30 AM

  • Alliance Park, where veterans will gather to toss a wreath into the Merrimack River in honor of all fallen Marines and Sailors.
  • From there, wreaths will be placed at the Veteran’s plot in Union Cemetery, then to the Doughboy statue and Justin Memorial, and then the Polish Memorial on Market Street.

10:00 AM

  • Landry Stadium, where the main speaker will be John Clifford, an Iraq Marine and Purple Heart recipient, and the current Commander of Amesbury Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2016.

The public is encouraged to attend to show respect for the military men and women who gave their lives serving our country, and the first responders who gave their lives serving their communities. It is recommended that veterans who attend the ceremony wear an item of clothing that distinguishes them as a veteran (cap, shirt, jacket, pins, and medals).
