Save the Date: In 2019, World Day of Remembrance will take place on Sunday, November 17th.
World Day of Remembrance is an annual, international event during which we gather as a community to reflect upon those we've lost and commit ourselves to improving our roads. In 2018, over 200 people turned out at the MA State House vigil to remember loved ones and to recognize the hundreds of people killed in traffic crashes across the state each year.
