The tradition of placing the American Flag on the graves to honor the veterans buried in Door County and around the country will continue this week before Memorial Day. The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 3088 will canvas Sturgeon Bay area cemeteries this Thursday to put out nearly 1,000 flags on grave sites. Post Quartermaster Bill Graf shares Thursday’s schedule.
Graf says the little-known Southside Cemetery is located behind the White Birch Inn in Sturgeon Bay. Anyone willing to help the VFW out on Thursday should meet at the Bayside Cemetery chapel at 9 AM. A pizza lunch at the VFW clubhouse will be provided at noon for volunteers.
