Gloucester County’s Memorial Day Ceremony Canceled

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Gloucester County's Memorial Day ceremony will be canceled this year for the safety of our veterans, families, and attendees.

Each year, Gloucester County residents gather to honor our veterans at the Gloucester County Veterans Memorial Ceremony at 240 N. Tuckahoe Rd., Williamstown, 08094. Due to Executive Orders and CDC guidelines, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 ceremony.

We understand the disappointment this may bring to our residents and our veterans. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused us to miss a lot of milestones and special events this year. The sacrifices we make during this time is crucial to flattening the curve so we can get back to celebrating these special moments together as a community. 

In order to honor Memorial Day and remember those lost, we will run the 2019 ceremony on our local channels. You can view the 2019 ceremony Saturday, Sunday and Monday at 12 p.m and 8 p.m. on Comcast Channel 97 or Verizon Channel 34.

We always aim to have a meaningful and dignified ceremony each year. Although we can’t all gather together this year, we ask everyone to please take time this Memorial Day to honor and remember the men and women who have given their all for this great country. Their sacrifices will never be forgotten.
