As part of the Flags for Fallen Veterans events over Memorial Day weekend, you can participate in the flag pickup on Saturday June 3rd, at Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell.
Flags are placed at EACH of the more than 150,000 gravesites at the National Cemetery, each Memorial Day in honor of our deceased veterans. On Saturday morning, we will caravan from Eisenhower Rec center to Bushnell, leaving at approximately 730AM. We will take part in the flag pickup with many others in the state. Our club participated last year, and it was a great experience for all who were part of that day.
The actual pickup takes about 90 minutes, as we have many volunteers, so we will have a group breakfast/brunch following the pickup activity. Location TBD.
If you are interested, please sign up no later than May 15, as I need to get a count to the event coordinators in the Flags for Fallen Veterans group.
