Who We Are: The Ellington Patriotic Committee is an all-volunteer, non-partisan, non-politically-affiliated organization of local citizens with the goal of promoting PATRIOTISM, in its various forms, among the residents of Ellington. Some of the members are veterans of America's Armed Forces. Some are members of various Civic organizations. Some are regular, everyday people. All of the members share a desire to be involved in our community: Ellington, the place we call home.
Our agenda is simple: to promote Patriotism in all manners and means, to support and honor America's veterans and their families, remembering their sacrifice, so that we, as Americans, can live free, and to foster a sense of pride and belonging among all of Ellington's residents.
What We Do: The Ellington Patriotic Committee is involved in many events and observances in our town dedicated to promoting Patriotism, and remembering the sacrifice of our active-duty military personnel and veterans, both living and those who have fallen. Chief among these are:
- Flag Retirement Ceremony (in cooperation with the Ellington Volunteer Fire Department)
- Memorial Day Observance and Parade
- Wreaths Across America
Members are appointed for one-year terms. Click here for more information.
