Memorial Day Watch Fires Ceremony

No future dates have been scheduled.
Memorial Day watch fires sponsored by the Vietnam Veterans of America are held annually throughout Rockland County to remember soldiers who are in service abroad and the troops who didn't return from war.
The watch fires will be lit at 11:30pm May 29 and burn for 24 hours at four locations:

• Bowline Point Park in Haverstraw
• Eugene Levy Memorial Park on Route 45 in Pomona
• The top of Clausland Mountain in Orangeburg
• The east end of the Piermont Pier.

Anyone wishing to retire flags can do so at any of the locations. A ceremony will be held at each of the four locations.
