American flags were placed at veteran’s graves at the Old Prospect Hill Cemetery on Monday by members of

the Gloversville Women’s Alumni Club and the Gloversville Parade Committee.

The GWACs also collect garbage in the cemetery in conjunction with the citywide cleanup.

Last year the group put 777 flags up in the old cemetery.

The GWACs and the parade committee will put flags at the graves of every veteran in the city before the Memorial Day Parade on May 28 at 9:30 a.m.
