Veterans' Graves Decorated
by Bobby Blair 5/24/12
As is tradition, the Thursday night before Memorial Day is always reserved to place flags on graves of deceased veterans in Holliston.
Below, John Givner, the town's new Veteran's Service Officer and now a town resident, places a flag on a grave at Lake Grove Cemetery
Scouts assisted local veterans in replacing worn out flags ....
...which would be burned in a solemn ceremony.
Prior to the burning ceremony, VFW Chaplain George Snow gave those present a lesson about our National Anthem.
Memorial Day Services will be held at 10 a.m. at Lake Grove Cemetery and 10:30 at St. Mary's Cemetery. The parade begins at 11:a.m. at the VFW Hall on Woodland Street.
