Memorial Day 2018 in Frankford

Monday, May 28th, Keep the Faith in Frankford and friends will gather in the cemetery at St. Joachim Church (Griscom and Church Streets) for a brief ceremony to remember those Frankford residents who died in the service of their country.  It is not to glorify war but to acknowledge their service.

We have been doing extensive research to find out as much about them as possible.  At present there are 125 names that we will read to honor their sacrifice.  They are listed below.  Everyone is invited to participate.
