Memorial Flag-Raising Ceremony

  • When: Monday, September 9, 2019, 11:00 am
    This repeat is an exception to the normal repeat pattern
  • Location: Town of Wake Forest, NC
  • Cost: Free

At 11 am on the first Monday of the month (from April through October), the Town of Wake Forest joins with several local veterans' organizations to honor the sacrifices of deceased Wake Forest veterans and their families. These services are provided at no cost and provided solely to pay tribute to the service and memory of deceased Wake Forest veterans, while also acknowledging the sacrifices of their families. Each ceremony features patriotic songs, special remarks, a memorial wreath laying and the ceremonial flag-raising by the Wake Forest Fire Department Honor Guard. After raising the American flag, the WFFD Honor Guard raises the service flag representing the military branch in which the honoree served. Both flags fly in Centennial Plaza throughout the remainder of the month.
