SHERIDAN — The Sheridan Veterans Council invites the public to continue the Memorial Day weekend tradition of placing American flags at the graves of all veterans buried at the Sheridan Municipal Cemetery on Sunday between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Flag-holder stakes will be placed at the graves by local veteran service organizations on Saturday, so the community will be able to pick up flags at the entrance on Sunday and place the flags at graves with the stakes. This will allow individuals and families to socially distance while honoring the men and women who have served our nation.
There will not be a parade or ceremony, due to current restrictions, however there will be a gun salute and playing of taps at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday. Those supporting the flag placement efforts at that time are asked to pause for the duration, remove hats or salute in remembrance of all of our fallen heroes.
Questions about this event should be directed to Veterans Council member Bob Young at 307-751-8217.
