The girls, along with their leaders and several parents and grandparents, assisted the Town Office in placing American flags at the headstones of local veterans in the community’s four cemeteries. The girls divided into groups to place flags at the Castle Hill, West Chapman, Main Street and Grendell Road cemeteries. Taking part in the project were, from left, front row: Delaney Alward, Alexus LaFerriere and Alexis Getchell. Back row: Amanda Winslow, Madelyn Buzza, Katelyn Amero, Rebecca Rider and Jenna Mountain.
