A Memorial Day thank you

Thank you to local Boy Scouts and veterans’ groups who decorated over 1,500 veteran graves with flags in the New and Old Auburn cemeteries. Though the weather was less than perfect, they still came out to help. As one Scout parent stated, “The soldiers didn’t stop when the weather was bad, so we shouldn’t either.” My gratitude also extends to the Auburn Area Honor Guard, who voluntarily provide military funeral honors to their fellow veterans.  I think it is wonderful we have so many citizens (young and old) who want to honor our veterans.  Sue Burkett, Auburn Public Cemetery District
