The Town of Rolesville wants to recognize the sacrifice that members of our community and their families have made by serving in the United States Armed Forces. To honor that service, we have joined up with the Community Gardeners of Rolesville to create a Memorial Day remembrance event called the Memorial Mile. This event will celebrate and remember those brave men and women who served our country during their life. Signs will be made to display along the greenway on Trail A in Main Street Park on Memorial Day.
