Volunteers needed for Veteran’s Day event; 44th Annual Pioneer Day Celebration
Volunteers needed for Veteran’s Day event
The Cemetery Operations unit of the Plant City Parks & Recreation Department will honor military veterans that are interred in the city’s four cemeteries with the placement of a United States flag at each veteran’s grave in recognition of Veteran’s Day.
Volunteers are needed to assist with the placement of flags for Park’s & Rez’s second annual Veteran’s Day Flags In event. The flag placement will occur on Saturday, Nov. 6, 2021, with all volunteers reporting to the Cemetery Operations office, 109 W. Spencer St., no later than 9 a.m. Groups will be given instructions on standard flag installation and assigned to specific areas to assist with the flag placements. The event provides a great way for local area civic and service clubs to recognize Veterans Day. Families are encouraged to participate as a way to show our youth the need to recognize and remember the men and women that fought for our country. Refreshments will be provided for all volunteers.
For planning purposes or more information, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and pre-register, giving your volunteer names and daytime telephone number. Comfortable clothing and footwear are recommended as there is a lot of ground to cover.
