Join the Town of Fort Mill as we honor all those who died while serving in the United States military during an in-person Memorial Day Ceremony on Monday, May 31, 2021.
The event will be held at 10:30 a.m. in Unity Cemetery, 303 Tom Hall St., with a welcome and introductory message from Fort Mill Mayor Guynn Savage, followed by a ceremonial program from American Legion Post 43. This includes an opening prayer, the Posting of Colors, Laying of the Wreath, Rifle Volley and Taps and Retirement of Colors. The names of local fallen soldiers will also be read during the ceremony.
