Veterans Day in Maynard 2019

The Maynard Veterans Council will hold our annual Veterans Day parade on Monday, November 11, 2019. All participants meet at the parking lot behind the Town Hall at 10:30 AM and steps off at 11:00 AM.

On this day we honor the men and women who served our nation either past or present. They left their homeland making sacrifices in the jungle, in the desert, in the frozen north or small pacific islands. We are ever indebted to these veterans who keep our country free.

We are joined by town and state officials, civic organizations including Boy and Girl Scouts and the Maynard High School Band. The march loops downtown Maynard proceeding down Main Street turning onto Summer Street and stop at Memorial Park for our commemoration ceremonies. The parade will return via Nason Street to the Town Hall for dismissal.

In case of bad weather, the ceremony will be held in the Stewart Campbell room in the Town Hall.
