Earlier today, Fred Rutledge – President of US Branch #25 – spent some time at Greenlawn Cemetery in Colma (one of the two cemeteries our branch helps to maintain).
Comrade Rutledge reports that it was a warm and breezy day, with hardly a soul in the cemetery. He put the Canadian, American, and Union Jacks flags up on the flagpole. There was one family that had placed Canadian and United Kingdom flags by their family’s markers, and another who had placed fresh flowers on the marker from another family.
Finally, the latest group of memorial name plaques for those who have passed recently, but are not buried at Greenlawn, were now on the central memorial.
