Brunswick to kick off July 4th weekend featuring Wreaths Across America
The Brunswick Parks & Recreation Department in conjunction with the American Legion Post 20 in Brunswick have teamed up to bring the Wreaths Across America Mobile Education Unit to The Brunswick Town Mall Brunswick Parks and Recreation on Brunswick Landing on Friday, July 2nd! “It’s an honor to bring Wreaths Across America’s mobile unit to Brunswick” says Town Council member and Post 20 Commander David Watson. “The event is sure to bring the community together to honor those that have given their lives to protect our freedoms” he continues. In addition, they have procured the 195th Maine Army National Guard Band to play at the mall that afternoon as well.
The Wreaths Across America Mobile Education Unit will be open from 11 am to 2 pm, with the 195th Maine Army National Guard Band playing around 1 PM, all at the south end of The Town Mall (near the Gazebo). Any Vietnam Veterans that served in theater in attendance on July 2nd will receive a gift from the WAA team. The goal of the Wreaths Across America Mobile Education Exhibit is to bring local communities and our military together with education, stories, and interactive connections. Not only does it help teach the next generation about service and sacrifice, but to share stories of patriotism and love of the country to communities around the United States.
