Welcome to the Silver Spring Township
Veterans Memorial Site
"Honor Sacrifice, Inspire Service"
“Honor Sacrifice, Inspire Service" is the motto of the Silver Spring Township’s Veterans Advisory Committee. Our mission is to honor all American veterans. We are committed to: Promoting equal and inclusive opportunities for veterans and their families in all aspects of society; Advising the Township’s Supervisors when requested, on matters relating to the development and implementation of new services and resources involving veterans; Educating the youth of the Township to foster an understanding and appreciation of the contributions and sacrifices veterans have made to the community and the nation; Providing veterans with valuable resources on our website; Planning and implementing the Township’s annual Memorial Day and Veterans Day Ceremony ensuring the event reflects Silver Spring’s respect and appreciation of the many sacrifices made by our honorable military personnel; Overseeing the maintenance and the future expansion of the Township’s Veterans Memorial site within Willow Mill Park.
The Veterans Memorial in Silver Spring Township is open when Willow Mill Park is open. Spend some quiet time remembering your Veterans but please be sure to keep social distancing and wear a mask to protect others who may be there too.
CANCELED: Due to the continuing stay at home and social distancing orders in place in Pennsylvania, the Committee has decided that the safest course of action is to Cancel the 2020 Memorial Day Service at The Veterans Memorial in Silver Spring Township, Willow Mill Park. We appreciate all of your past support from the Cumberland Valley Jr. ROTC, Middle schools, and Cumberland Perry Vo Tech, the Army War College, Young Marines and Boy Scouts and other community members. We all look forward to seeing you in November for our Veterans Service. Dedication of new Plaques and Bricks will take place in November, also. Watch here and the township website for other opportunities to honor our Veterans. Thank you for understanding.
The 2020 Annual Golf Outing is POSTPONED: Due to the continuing guidance against large gatherings in PA, we are postponing the outing until fall. We will let you all know of when (if) we can reschedule. Keep checking here and on the Silver Spring Township Website for further details.
Thank you to David Minnich for the great drone photos of our beautiful memorial.
