Acadia National Cemetery dedicated in reverential weekend ceremony

by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

Heavy rains held off just long enough to allow a solemn ceremony dedicating Acadia National Cemetery, which took place on Saturday, Aug. 30. In keeping with coronavirus restrictions, a small group was invited to hear remarks from Sen. Susan Collins, Under Secretary for Memorial Affairs Randy Reeves, and Secretary of Veteran Affairs Robert Wilkie. Music was provided by Maine National Guard’s 195th Army Band.
