Volunteers needed for Memorial Day flag placement

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

  Mayor Carlo DeMaria, in collaboration with Veterans Services Commissioner Jeanne Cristiano, will be placing United States flags on Veteran-marked graves at both the Woodlawn and Glenwood Cemeteries in honor of Memorial Day. We are asking our residents to please consider taking a couple hours from their busy schedules to help with the flag placement.

  We encourage residents to take part in this special task of honoring those who served in our nation’s armed services and are now laid to rest. Many of these heroes gave their lives for our freedom while on active duty.

  If you haven’t had the opportunity to join us before for this effort, it is a truly humbling experience to be reminded of the sacrifices that the men and women from our community were willing to make to defend our nation and our freedom. Placing these flags is a small, but important way for us to thank these individuals who have gone before us for their service.

  Volunteers will be asked to meet at the following locations and times:

  • Monday, May 16, Glenwood Cemetery, 8 to 11 a.m.
  • Tuesday, May 17, Woodlawn Cemetery, 7:30 to 11:30 a.m.

  If a rain date is needed for either date, it will be on Wednesday, May 18.

  If you can participate, please contact Jeanne Cristiano at Jeanne.cristiano@ci.everett.ma.us.
