ROCKLAND — The Midcoast Maine Veterans Memorial hosts a 2022 Tile Dedication Ceremony Sunday, July 3, at 1 p.m. with 15-20 minutes of lead-in music.

Midcoast Maine Veterans Memorial is located beyond the parking lot of Rockland’s Winslow-Holbrook-Merritt American Legion Post No. 1 at 335 Limerock Street.

This year’s ceremony will be held to dedicate 24 newly mounted tiles representing 25 individuals from the Midcoast area who served in the Armed Forces of the United States of America. Among the tiles to be dedicated is one for a brave son of Rockland who was lost in the South Pacific during WW2, and another for two brothers who joined the U.S. Marine Corps and fought in WW2.

Music will be provided by the Bay Winds North music ensemble under the direction of Marlene Hall.

Join us in honoring these folks who proudly served their country. It is suggested to bring a folding chair. There will be some chairs provided by the Legion Post but, if past attendance is any indication, they will not be enough to handle the expected crowd.
