Veterans Day Ceremony

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this November 11 will be a different Veterans Day than previous ones. To protect the health and safety of Wilton Manors residents, this year’s tribute to local military veterans will be a virtual one. 

Rather than participating in the long-established annual gathering at Hagen Park, participants are encouraged to watch two videos from our presenting sponsor, Memorial Healthcare System, and check out the virtual offerings from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.  

Additionally, we would like to thank the Wilton Manors Historical Society for sponsoring a floral wreath at the Veterans Memorial Park on Wilton Drive.
