The community is invited to help place flags at the graves of veterans at two cemeteries in Alpena this Memorial Day holiday weekend.

Volunteers will be meeting at the Evergreen Cemetery maintenance building at 9 a.m. Saturday.

Those wishing to help should bring gloves, pliers, a screwdriver and a 5 gallon bucket.

Residents are also invited to join members of All Saints Church as they place flags at the graves of veterans in Holy Cross Cemetery. Volunteers should meet at the cemetery office at 10 a.m. Saturday, and bring the same items as listed above.

Flags will be placed at both cemeteries rain or shine.
