We placed flags at the following cemeteries: Old and new Prospect Hill, Kingsborough, Knesseth Israel and Ferndale, with the exception of the veterans' section. We keep records from year to year to maintain accuracy. We purchase USA-made flags with the generous donations from our community.
We would like to say thank you to the caretakers for making our job easier by taking excellent care of the properties.
