Wall of Honor Nominations Due May 1

At the February 12, 2024 Board of Selectmen meeting, the annual due date to submit nominations for the Ellington Wall of Honor, located in Arbor Park, was amended to May 1st; applications had previously been due on July 1st.

This deadline update is an administrative alignment to comply with the scheduling needs of the engraving company that the Town uses to add the new inductee to the Wall each year, in time for the annual ceremony held at the site of the Wall of Honor in September, prior to the Fireman’s Fair Parade event.

The Wall of Honor, located in Arbor Park (Main Street), recognizes deserving citizens for exceptional contributions to the Town of Ellington. If you wish to nominate a candidate for this honor, please contact the First Selectman’s Office at 860-870-3100 for an application, or download one from our website, You can also submit a nomination online.

Please note that if you submitted an application in the previous three years, it will be included in the pool of current eligible candidates. The Board of Selectmen Town Policies Committee will review the applications and may recommend a recipient to the Board of Selectmen at their May 13, 2024 meeting. If a recipient is chosen, his/her name will be engraved on the Wall of Honor and unveiled at a public ceremony in September, just prior to the Fire Department’s parade.
