Memorial Park & Event Layout



PARKING

Parking for dignitaries and those disabled, elderly, or frail will be at Kittery Town Hall, 200 Rogers Road. Attendees are requested to reserve the Park side of Town Hall parking for the frail, elderly or disabled.   Attendance is not expected to be large enough to require shuttle transportation. Parking at Memorial Circle area businesses is not condoned.


DIGNITARY ASSEMBLY

Ceremony participants are invited to gather in Town Hall Council Chambers beginning at 9:15am.  Master of Ceremonies Ken Lemont will be on hand to answer any questions.  Memorial Park is just across the Town Hall rear entry driveway.


TRAFFIC CONTROL

That portion of Rogers Road fronting the Park and Town Hall will be closed off from 9:30am to 11:00am. Traffic will be detoured into Memorial Circle Northbound and Southbound.  No other detours are required. Emergency response vehicles are exempted from the detour.

An ambulance and fire truck will be parked on Rogers Road adjacent to the Park for emergencies.


SEATING

Seating will only be provided for ceremony dignitaries due to space and terrain considerations.  All other attendees are standing room only and invite to surround the event center space.  Please note the locations of the ceremonial participants and activities and keep those areas clear.  The masonic ceremony will be conducted on the Circle of Honor  Courtyard in front of the Thresher monument.
