Wellington Hosts Veterans Day Parade & Ceremony

Councilwoman Tanya Siskind, Mario Silvercup and Henry Tocci place the wreath in honor of the U.S. Marines.

The light rain prior to Wellington’s Veterans Day Parade and Ceremony on Thursday, Nov. 11 did not discourage those who came to honor local servicemen and women. After a procession down Forest Hill Blvd. to the Wellington Veterans Memorial, guests and honorees attended a ceremony dedicated to recognizing the sacrifices given by our veterans. Former Mayor Tom Wenham, who served during the Korean War, addressed the crowd and introduced the new Wellington Heroes program. Wreaths were laid in honor of each military branch.
