The Memorial Day Public Ceremony held at the Hampton Veterans Memorial has been canceled due to state distancing guidelines.

According to the township’s website, though the official ceremony will not take place, members of the Hampton American Legion will gather Monday for a brief salute at the Hampton Community Center Veterans Memorial.

The American Legion asks residents to drop off flowers at the Community Center from Saturday through Monday morning, in front of the activity room doors to the left of the main entrance. The American Legion will place the flowers at the memorial on Monday.
