Memorial Day Flag Placing – Woodlawn Cemetery

May 20 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am

Mayor Seeks Volunteers to Help Place Flags on Graves of Veterans

Residents are asked to participate in the special task of honoring those who served and are no longer with us

Mayor Carlo DeMaria is pleased to announce the City of Everett has planned two days to place U.S. flags on the graves of veterans at Glenwood and Woodlawn cemeteries in preparation for Memorial Day.

Mayor DeMaria is asking residents to take part in the special task of honoring those who served our country and are now laid to rest by helping place flags on veteran-marked graves. Many of these heroes gave their lives for our freedom while on active duty and it’s important to never forget their sacrifice.

“If you haven’t had the opportunity to join us for this effort before, it is a truly humbling experience to be reminded of the sacrifices that the men and women from our very own community were willing to make to defend our country and our freedom,” said Mayor DeMaria. “Placing flags is a small but important way for us to thank and remember the individuals who are no longer with us for their service.”

Volunteers are asked to meet at the following locations and times:

Glenwood Cemetery (Washington Ave., Everett, MA 02149):

  • Tuesday, May 14: 8 a.m. – 11 a.m.

Woodlawn Cemetery (302 Elm St., Everett, MA 02149):

  • Monday, May 20: 8 a.m. – 11 a.m.

If you are able to participate, please contact Veterans Service Agent Gerri Miranda at [email protected]. If you have any questions, please contact Gerri in our Veterans’ Affairs Department at 617-394-2320.
