Bridgewater Memorial Day Ceremony 

Bridgewater will have a short Memorial Day Wreath Laying Ceremony on Monday at 10AM on the Town Common to honor our fallen service members.
This tradition has been conducted in our town each year since 1863 as our town honored and remembered their brave family members, friends, relatives, and neighbors. Attendance has unfortunately dwindled over time and I’d love to see us revive this important community tradition of reflection, appreciation and gratitude for those in our town who gave everything to protect our beliefs and way of life.
Your attendance is welcome and appreciated. See you there!
