Wellington Commemorates Memorial Day with Virtual Ceremony


On Monday, May 25, 2020 Wellington will broadcast a virtual Memorial Day Ceremony to honor America’s fallen war heroes. Traditionally, the Village hosts it’s Memorial Day Parade & Ceremony at the Veterans Memorial, however, due to COVID-19 gathering restrictions, the decision was made to honor the men and women who fought for America’s freedoms through a virtual tribute.

Wellington residents can tune in to WellingtonTV (Comcast channel 18, AT&T Uverse channel 99) on May 25th to watch special messages from Wellington’s Council, a wreath-laying ceremony by local veterans from Wellington’s Chris Reyka Memorial American Legion Post 390, as well as a reading of the names of our local veterans.

Wreaths will be placed at the Veterans Memorial for those who wish to stop by and pay their respect.

As a reminder, Village Hall will be closed on Monday, May 25 in observance of Memorial Day. No phone or walk-up service will be available on this day. We continue to provide services online through the Village’s website. For more information please visit our How Do I webpage.
