Thank You to Boy Scouts - June 2017

    Many "Thank You's" to Boy Scout Troops 510 and 630 for placing the American Flags on the graves of the Veterans, in all six cemeteries on Grand Island. As we remember our fallen, while serving their country, on Memorial Day the practice of placing flags on the graves of all Veterans is a show of a sign of respect for those who served in the Armed Forces of the Unites States of America. Many Communities across the country have taken the practice in various ways, but the proper method is to gather the flags as soon as possible after Memorial Day, according to The American Legion.
   Anyone who would like a flag for their loved ones grave, can request one from the local American Legion Post. The Grand Island Post #1346 meets on the last Wednesday of the Month, at the Loyal Order of the Moose, 2524 Grand Island Blvd. Grand Island, NY at 7:00 p.m. We are always looking to sign up eligible Veterans to join with us to make our community a greater place to live. Veterans, you will like what we are doing for Veterans and the Grand Island Community. Come to a meeting and check us out. Have a wonderful and safe Summer.
