Veterans Day and the Dedication of the New Vietnam Veterans Memorial at Ellis Square took place on November 11th, 2018 at 11:00 AM. A large turn out came to observe Veterans Day and the unveiling of the new Sculpture and Plaques at the new Memorial.
After the Veterans Day observance, the Dedication took place with the reading of the 11 names of the killed in Acton in Vietnam from Beverly and the unveiling of the new sculpture. The new Memorial was a effort of many people especially the members of the Beverly Vietnam Veterans, City of Beverly, and many others. The project started almost 2 years ago, and after many meetings and discussions, the Vietnam Memorial is now a reality, and as time goes on we will continue to add to the park.
