Memorial Day Event
The Town of Flower Mound invites the community to join together to remember fallen soldiers of war. The Memorial Day ceremony takes place at the Flower Mound Senior Center, 2701 W Windsor Dr., and features keynote speakers from the military and local leaders, Color Guard, and patriotic music. The Town asks residents to submit a picture and bio of a fallen hero which will be added to a special Wall of Honor and recognized during the event.
Veterans Day Ceremony
The Town of Flower Mound honors local veterans in a special Veterans Day ceremony and family picnic on the Sunday prior to Veterans Day at Flower Mound High School’s football stadium. There is a picnic, which takes place from 1 to 2 p.m., which includes free hot dogs, cake, and lemonade. The ceremony begins at 2 p.m., and includes a Veterans Review, where approximately 200 local Boy Scouts, Girls Scouts and ROTC units parade before the veterans in uniform.
Veterans Day Relay Run
Flower Mound residents are invited to cheer on the participants in the Flower Mound Veterans Day Relay on Veterans Day, November 11. Throughout the day, participants commemorate our nation's veterans and their service by carrying the American flag on a pre-determined route around Town. The route takes runners by each Lewisville ISD school in Flower Mound, to provide an opportunity for students to encourage the runners. The Veterans Day Relay Run ends with a post-event celebration at the Community Activity Center, and is open to the public.
Individuals interested in participating are invited to complete an online application prior to midnight on Sunday, October 17.
