Garden of Memories Cemetery is by far the largest cemetery in our local community with more than 4,500 veterans interned there. It is an extensive undertaking to place flags on the grave of each Veteran for Memorial Day.

We are requesting the help of volunteers to place flags on the graves. This mission requires attention to detail, determination and quick adaptive skill sets to finish in a timely manner. Please dress appropriately for the weather and wear appropriate footwear.  

Please sign up by emailing chiquita.loveless@uni.edu or yloveless@blackhawkcounty.iowa.gov, or call 319-287-9463 to keep this noble tradition alive.

When: 
Thursday, May 23
Two shifts available at 9 a.m. -  noon; and 4-7 p.m.

Where: 
Garden of Memories, 3669 Logan Avenue, Waterloo, IA 50703. 
(North of Waterloo on Highway 63)

We will be taking flags back out of the ground on Wednesday, May 29 throughout the day. We would like to encourage folks to help out with that process as well.
