Volunteers Needed To Place Flags On Veterans' Graves
The annual show of volunteer and patriotism will take place on Saturday in Ogdensburg.
Allen E. Mooney, who has been organizing Memorial Day events in Ogdensburg for 30 years, is asking volunteers to meet him at the3 Notre Dame Cemetery at 9 a.m. The volunteers will then spread out place flags on the graves of veterans at local cemeteries. Mooney said there are more than 2,000 flags to placed on the graves and anyone seeking for information on the effort should contact him at 315-393-7904. On Memorial Day, Mr. Mooney will also organize volunteers to go to the Ogdensburg Cemetery to place wreathes, lower the flag to half-staff and hold a quiet ceremony which will not be open to the public.
