Memorial Day is a national holiday commemorating those who have died in military service to their country. For many years, Woodlawn recognized this solemn and special occassion with the Flagging of Veteran's Graves with the assistance of a group of volunteers and scout troops from the community. After considering the guidance and safety recommendations for the prevention of COVID-19 and for the safety of our volunteers, this public event will not be held.
Woodlawn remains open to visitors and for those families of military heroes, we invite you to place a flag on your loved one's grave. Complimentary flags will be available at the Jerome Avenue security booth and the Webster Avenue security booth on Saturday, May 23, Sunday, May 24, and Monday, May 25, between Woodlawn's visitor hours of 8:30 am - 4:00 pm.
Thank you for your understanding and friendship. We look forward to seeing you here soon.
