Wellington and the American Legion Chris Reyka Memorial Wellington Post 390 will honor all veterans with a Memorial Day Ceremony on Monday, May 30th, 2016. Veterans are invited to walk in a Memorial Day Parade beginning at 8:15 am at Village Hall located at 12300 Forest Hill Boulevard. The parade ends at Wellington’s Veterans Memorial located on the corner of Forest Hill Boulevard and South Shore Boulevard, and will be followed at 8:30 am by the Memorial Day Ceremony.

Wellington has also partnered with the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration to thank and honor all of our Vietnam Veterans, including those held as prisoners of war and those listed as missing in action. Veterans will be recognized for their service and sacrifice on behalf of the United States on this 50th year of remembrance. Wellington has also received a proclamation recognizing its approval as an official Commemorative Program Partner.
