Memory Garden Memorial Park and Mortuary in Brea will be holding their annual Flag Ceremony this Memorial Day weekend. This very special event pays tribute to the brave men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice so we can enjoy the freedom we have today.
Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Cub Scouts from around the area have been asked to help place small flags and crosses on the graves of our veterans buried at Memory Garden on Saturday, May 29 starting at 6:30 a.m.
On Monday, May 31 at 6:30 am, they will be setting up the “Avenue of the Flags” where they raise full size funeral flags representing veterans who passed away and have been buried there over the past 53 years. At 3 pm, these full size flags will be taken down and folded.
We have been offered the opportunity to participate in this event. If anyone would like to help, please feel free to go to Memory Garden on either Saturday or Monday at 6:30 am to set up, or on Monday at 3 pm to take down flags. Please meet in front of the Memory Garden Office. Full class A Uniforms would be appropriate. Each boy and sibling must be accompanied by an adult.
Special thanks to Mrs. Carrasco for giving us this information.
