Memorial Day 2020

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Town of Somerset will not be holding its traditional Memorial Day Ceremony but will instead be broadcasting a virtual program on Comast Channel 9.

The team from Channel 9 has been working with the town’s Veterans Service Officer, Heather Cheetham, by pre-recording segments at each memorial and with each Post commander from the VFW Post 8500, AMVETS Post 72, American Legion Post 228, an the LCPL John J Van Gyzen Det. 1285 Marine Corp League.

They have also been finding creative and socially distant ways to involve the board of selectmen. 

Though we cannot gather together during these unprecedented times, it’s important to set aside time to remember the members of the United States Armed Forces who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
