Memorial Day

Memorial Mile

Memorial Mile | May 27, 2024 | 11 AM | Rolesville Town Hall

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 created 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 on South Main Street on Memorial Day.

Join us to celebrate and remember those who served our country. Memorial Signs will be made to display along Main Street starting at Town Hall on Memorial Day. Join us for a flag ceremony and a walk of remembrance.
