Chapel Hill VFW Post 9100 will place flags on the graves of local veterans at the Chapel Hill Memorial Cemetery at 6:30 a.m. At 8 a.m. they will hold a memorial service.
Anyone can attend and ask for a flag to place on the grave of a veteran friend or family member. Local Boy Scouts will participate. This is a very moving event that is drawing larger crowds each year.
So, before you head for the beach or a shopping center, take a little time to remember veterans and what Memorial Day is really about.
