Another successful and meaningful Memorial Day ceremony was held on Sunday May 28, 2017. Services began at the First Congregational Church of Gill, Gary Bourbeau presiding. Afterwards the group walked over to the Veterans Monuments. There an opening address was delivered by Selectman Greg Snedeker and Marine Corp Commandant Brian Brooks. The Rose Ceremony was conducted by Memorial Committee members Doug and Elaine Smith. The flag raising was done by Mike Hastings and members of the V.F.W. "Taps" was played by buglers Steve and Joyanna Damon and bag piper Phelan Muller played several verses of "Amazing Grace." Big thanks to all who participated. All are welcome at these services; we encourage you to attend next year.

ATTENTION GILL VETERANS

If you served in the Military between 1976 to present, and were a resident of Gill upon entering the service, we need to hear from you. The Memorial Committee is currently studying the possible placement of a new Memorial Monument or plaque. To determine the size we need to know the number of Veterans whose names will be on it. Just call one of the Memorial Committee members listed above. Thank you.
