Volunteer Flag Placement: Preparing to Honor America's Heroes

Sunday, May 17, 2020 at 10:00 AM

The General Meade Society of Philadelphia, in conjunction with the Friends of Laurel Hill & West Laurel Hill Cemeteries, call all volunteers to assist in preparing for the nation’s Memorial Day commemoration. Those assembled will be assigned to place American flags on the grave sites of Veterans that served in all of our nation’s wars. As time and manpower permit, in addition to Laurel Hill, cemeteries covered may include Mount Moriah, Mount Peace, and St. James the Less. Free refreshments will be provided to all.

The flag placement will take place on Sunday, May 17, 2020 at 10:00 am, departing from Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Gatehouse entrance at 3822 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19132. Free parking is located in the lot across the street from the Gatehouse.
