Military Grave Flagging

The annual flagging and cleaning of military stones located in the Braman Cemetery on Farewell Street will take place on Saturday, May 19, at 10 a.m. in preparation for Memorial Day. The city will provide the needed equipment and knowhow, but volunteers with energy and enthusiasm are also needed. The Historic Cemetery Advisory Commission will have the flags and will know where to place them.

This community service activity is a great way to start Armed Forces Day and prepare for the Memorial Day holiday. Join in honoring those who have served our country. The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #406, The American Legion Post #7, the Sons of Union Veterans and The Historic Cemetery Advisory Commission invite you to participate in this event. Questions should be emailed to npthistoriccemeteries@gmail.com.
