|Malcolm, Bruce, Phil, and Karin went out on a drizzling and misty day on Great Cranberry to place flags on the graves of veterans. These flags are paid for by the Town.
We visited these cemeteries in turn, and found the indicated number of veteran's graves: Stanley (6), Bunker (11), Preble (4), Spurling (3), George Bunker (1), Spurling Point (2), and Harding Point (8). In several places, new flags were already in place.
The oldest grave we found was at Spurling Point, for a Revolutionary War veteran.
In all, we identified 35 veteran's graves, and placed 27 new flags (the others were already in good condition.)
If we have missed any known veterans, please inform Karin Whitney, as she is keeping a list of the graves to be so honored each year.
