Welcome to our Web Site!

The tenth annual Walk of Honor, will be held on Sunday, October 15, 2017 at 12:00PM to pay tribute to our country's veterans - both past and present.  It will be held at the Danbury War Memorial on Memorial Drive in Danbury. The one-mile walk for those who wish to participate will take place after the ceremony and will loop around South Street, Coalpit Hill Road, Lions Way and Memorial Drive. Click here to download this year's event program.

For the sixth straight year, we will honor a local veteran with the Walk of Honor Warrior Award. We are asking Danbury residents and the surrounding areas to nominate a veteran, who has served in a combat zone and who also exemplifies the values of courage, integrity, devotion to duty, loyalty, respect, selfless service and honor.

The nominations should be no longer than five hundred words and should include the nominees name and military rank along with the name and contact information of the person submitting the nomination. All nominations must be emailed to [email protected] and received by Sunday, September 17, 2017 for consideration.

I know we have many heroes walking among us every day and we dont even realize who they are.  I think its important to take the time to say thank you.  We may not know all of your names, but we know what you have given of yourselves and this is a small token of our gratitude, said Mary Teicholz, founder and organizer of the event.

Mayor Mark Boughton said, "It is an honor to have the Walk of Honor event in our community again this year.  Too often we forget the sacrifices that so many have made for our rights and freedom and this event gives us the rare opportunity to come together to thank them."
