July 13, 2015 - Easton is Now a Purple Heart Community

The Easton Board of Selectmen ratified a proclamation on Monday night officially declaring Easton a Purple Heart Community. The proclamation expresses Easton’s gratitude for the sacrifices of all members of the military, in particular those who have been awarded the Purple Heart after sustaining injuries or dying in combat. The Board also declared August 7th as Purple Heart Day in the town and a ceremony will be held annually in remembrance of Purple Heart recipients. Details of this year’s ceremony are forthcoming.
