Memorial Day Tradition Continuing Thanks to Help of Next Generation
ELMHURST TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Thousands of American Flags now cover the grounds of Fairview Memorial Park in Elmhurst, a Memorial Day tradition. "Our post has been doing all the flags in the North Pocono area on the local cemeteries for 35 to 40 years now, and every year it gets fewer and fewer people come out to do it because of the age and the older veterans passing away," said Joseph Zurcher, VFW Post 5207.
