Memorial Day Tradition Continues

Great Lawn to again honor deceased veterans

St. Mary’s Church in Cold Spring will continue its longstanding Memorial Day tradition this year when 500 white crosses and Stars of David will be planted on the Great Lawn at the corner of Main and Chestnut streets. Each will bear the name of a deceased veteran to commemorate his or her service.

The memorial will be available for viewing from May 27 through June 5. The deadline for submissions is May 25.

To commemorate a veteran, send his or her name to St. Mary’s Church, 1 Chestnut Street, Cold Spring, NY 10516 with rank, military branch and war in which he or she served, if applicable. Submissions can also be emailed to [email protected] This service is provided through the efforts of volunteers. No fee is charged but donations to the church are appreciated.
