A remembrance ceremony in honor of President John F. Kennedy is being held tonight in Danbury.
November 22nd 1963, the assassination of JFK, is a date that many people can remember vividly 50 years later. Danbury Democratic Town Committee Chairman Joe DaSilva Junior says there are certain things that resonate with people and they will never forget where they were when they heard the news, and the death of President Kennedy is certainly one of them. Similarly the generation before can remember where they were when they heard about Pearl Harbor and the generation after can remember 9/11 like it was yesterday.
Tonight the Danbury Democratic Town Committee is inviting the public to Kennedy Park on Main Street at 6pm.
DaSilva says they will light 50 luminaries around the fountain at the park and lay a wreath. Speeches of remembrance and inspiration including the recitation of a Robert Frost poem will also take place at there ceremony.
