Historic Pierce Cemetery Friends Memorial Day celebration

Forty-one American flags will be placed at the Pierce Cemetery on Monday, May 28. 

Volunteers are invited to join the Historic Pierce Cemetery Friends on Monday, May 28 (Memorial Day) at the Pierce Cemetery. This year the group will be displaying 41 Memorial Flags. 

Flag set up will be at 8 a.m. At 7 p.m. the group will take the flags down. It is our goal to be able to display flags at the Pierce Cemetery on special days with the help of volunteers. 

To accomplish this goal, the group is asking for donations to purchase Memorial Flags. This project is intended to beautify the cemetery and honor Veterans and loved ones who have served and sacrificed for us. 

The purchase price of $100 includes the flag, flagpole, hardware to attach the flag, in–ground pole holder, and a memorial plaque. Any individual or group may purchase a flag in memory of a Veteran or a loved one, regardless of whether the person is buried at the Pierce Cemetery 

Anyone wishing to assist with this project by making a donation of $100 may do so by contacting Dan and Patty Goodrich at (208) 464-2333. Please join the Pierce Cemetery Friends in this worthwhile project!
