Remembering Our World War II Veterans
Friday, October 12, 2012 (Week 16)
See Prior and Subsequent Weeks 
In conjunction with the new exhibit, “Loved Ones Go to War: Local Stories of World War II,” the Museum is honoring deceased local World War II veterans with a flag raising ceremony each week from June 29 to December 7, 2012.

Every Friday at 6:30 p.m., a new flag will be raised at the Eden Woolley House and fly in honor of that week's veteran. The flag can be provided by the family or the Museum.

Local Boy Scouts from Troop 70 (Oakhurst), Troop 71 (Oakhurst) and Troop 76 (Wayside), veterans organizations or other groups will officiate over the raising and lowering of the flags. A sign in front of the flag pole will give information about the veteran being honored. The family and the public are welcome.
