I got the details for the flag placing at the graves at the Western Reserve Cemetery – I will have a signup sheet at the next meeting – here is the info so you can update your calendar:
Ohio Western Reserve National Cemetery
10175 Rawiga Road
Seville, Ohio 44273
(approx. 45 min drive)
Class A Uniform – be prepared for the weather, also a warning: there is a lot of waiting around involved.
Saturday May 27th – meet at church at 7:00 AM – leave by 7:15 AM (It’s best to get there early to get a parking spot. It fills up quickly) We will need drivers – should be home/back to church between 12-12:30 AM
Registration begins at 8:30 AM
Ceremony is at 10:00 AM
10:15-10:20 AM we will be conducting a service for Capt. Ely Riddle at the Flag pole. Our forgotten Veteran. (We ask that scouts remain in place for service, but will not be required if you do not wish to observe) 10:40 AM Scouts will be dismissed to attend to their flag placement. Refreshments to follow once the job is done. 12:30 AM cemetery will resume normal internment operations.
