Join us for the Melrose Chili Chowder Challenge
Local organizations will compete for best chili and best chowder for the second straight year. Additionally, local restaurants will offer their fine fare in an effort to raise money to support Operation Remember.
Students from Melrose Veterans Memorial Middle School have been working hard all year as part of a year-long focus on Korean War veterans. A trip to Washington D.C. on May 7th will pair these students with Korean War veterans for a once-in-a-life time trip to experience the national Korean War monument. Operation Remember will culminate on Memorial Day will the installation of a Korean War Memorial.
The event will also feature a 50/50 raffle, a Korean War display, beer and wine.
