Bar Harbor’s 2021 Memorial Day Ceremony – May 31
Bar Harbor's 2021 Memorial Day Ceremony will take place once again this year on the Village Green at 10 a.m. at the War Memorial on Monday, May 31st.
Last year because of COVID, it was very low-key, with members of the public encouraged not to attend. The event was live-streamed. This year, the public is encouraged to attend. Maine's Secretary of State Shenna Bellows will speak. There will also be a color guard by the Bar Harbor Police and Fire Department and Brian Booher will play taps. Poems will also be read.
Here's hoping that we can return to the "traditional" ceremony in 2022 at the Town Pier with the Coast Guard present, and music from the Conners-Emerson School Band.
Check out video from the 202 Ceremony and photos. Jay Higgins from the Bar Harbor Fire Department read two poems and laid the wreath with Brian Booher playing taps.
