When: Sunday May 29 2016 ~ 9:30 am Meet at Museum at 9:30 am to car pool/11 am for services at Quabbin Park Cemetery

March behind the PHS banner together with Pelham Elementary school children and members of the Pelham Historical Society at this service honoring individuals removed from their original resting places for the building of Quabbin Reservoir.

Moving first through the Quabbin Park Cemetery we will arrive at the War Memorials and markers from the former Swift River valley towns of Dana, Enfield, Greenwich, and Prescott. In addition to honoring Veterans and those who lost their lives in service to our country, this ceremony also recognizes the sacrifices made by former residents of the Swift River Valley so that the Quabbin Reservoir could be built. More information about the Quabbin Park Cemetery can be found at the Department of Conservation and Recreation – Quabbin Park Cemetery website here.
