As in years past, Carroll Gardeners gathered around the World War 1 Memorial in Carroll Park on Memorial Day to pay tribute to our veterans and to remember those who gave their lives in service to their country. It was a touching ceremony attended by people of all ages.
Army Sergeant Nick Assante lead the Honor Guard and laid a wreath at the base of the memorial.

Councilmember Brad Lander and Assemblywoman Jo Anne Simon were both in attendance. So were representatives of our local police precinct and firehouse.

Thank you to Joan D'Amico and to Vince Mazzone of Merchants of Court Street and Smith Street, who organized the event. Thank you also to Mike Manus, who stepped up to the microphone to sing 'God Bless America'.
Joan and Vince also wanted to acknowledge Carroll Gardens Florist for donating the wreath, Madison Estates Realty for providing the flags and John Creech Designs for making the podium.
