Memorial Day & War Memorials

     Memorial Day is an important day in Andover . It is usually preceded by people taking flowers down to the Woodlawn Cemetery and putting the flowers on the gravesites of their loved ones.

Andover's Memorial Day Ceremonies are held each year on the Common to honor our veterans. Below are some pictures that show this. Also below are pictures of the War Memorial Stones located on the common.

We would like to thank all the veterans and people who are serving in the military for their service and keeping out country safe so we can all enjoy our freedom.
