The public is welcome and encouraged to observe and pay their respects to those who died in service to our country.

The town’s veterans respectfully request that the youth of Smithfield please join us to observe this ceremony in order that they will always remember the sacrifices our men and women in uniform endured for their freedoms.

In conjunction with the Smithfield Senior Center, in support of Operation Stand Down Rhode Island, there will be a collection of clothing. Donations of new socks and underwear are requested and will be distributed to homeless veterans around the state.
