Scouts Place Flags at Graves of Fortuna Area Veterans
On this beautiful, sunny Memorial Day weekend when many people are thinking about recreational activities, Scouts from Fortuna were involved in remembering those who have made this nation’s freedom possible.
Scouts from Cub Pack 47, Scout Troops 47 & 205, and Venture Scouts from Troop 42 spent Saturday morning placing flags at graves of Fortuna area veterans at five area cemeteries.
Hundreds of small flags were placed on graves at Cemeteries in Fortuna and Hydesville as part of an annual tradition sponsored by the Fortuna Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2207.
The flags will remain on the veterans’ graves throughout the Memorial Day weekend, and Scouts will remove and store them on Monday evening
