CEMETERY FLAG PLANTING

Saturday, May 18th, 2019

St. John Cemetery, Woodland Cemetery and Queen of Peace Cemetery


As we prepare for Memorial Day weekend, Springdale Post 9617, VFW, will sponsor flag planting at cemeteries around Stamford. We remember all veterans who have passed and who protected our liberties throughout the years. We honor them by planting U.S. flags next to their grave sites. Thank you to the city of Stamford for providing the flags.


Our main effort begins at St. John Cemetery, 25 Camp Ave, Darien CT 06820 located on Hoyt St and Camp Ave on the Stamford/Darien border. Meeting place is off the second Hoyt St entrance (when heading north) just before Camp Ave by the cemetery garage. Post members will be there to assist with the flag planting directions. Planting starts at 8:00 am and finishes around 11:00 am. Arrive when you can and stay as long as you can.


Other cemeteries include Woodland cemetery, 66 Woodland Pl, Stamford CT 06902 starting at 9:00 am and Queen of Peace cemetery,  in the afternoon.
