Flag Planting on Veterans’ Graves
May 21, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 am
This Saturday at 8:30am is the annual flag planting at veteran gravesites at the Fairview Cemetery in West Hartford. This event is put together each year by the Boy Scouts of America. This is becoming an annual event for our RTC and we’re inviting all of our newsletter subscribers to come join us. It’s an excellent opportunity for everyone to show their community and patriotic spirit by honoring those that served our great country and in many cases paid the ultimate sacrifice.
I would like everyone to make every effort to join us this Saturday. Please be sure to bring your spouses, family and friends to join us. I would like us to meet in the Fairview Cemetery in West Hartford at 8:00am ET. I will have a table with coffee and doughnuts for everyone so, we’ll have plenty of energy for this event.
When you first enter the front entrance of the cemetery, turn left and you will see parking spaced with my car on the left side.
For those of you that haven’t done this before, it’s really easy. You’ll be given a map and section of the cemetery to serve, as well as, a pole planter and flags. We can all pair off in teams and its just simply finding headstones with a military service mark on the stone. You use the pole planter to make a hole in the ground at the head of the stone and plant the flag in the hole. It would be great if everyone can give at least an hour of their time for this event.

Can you please RSVP to me immediately to let me know that you can attend? I’d like to get a headcount for the event. Let’s get a big crowd and show our community spirit.
