Kiwanis Honors Veterans by Placing Flags in Fair Mount Cemetery

Kneeling beside the gravestone of Col. Benjamin Proctor Holmes are members of the American Legion Bob Huntington (L) and Herb Ramo (R). Standing (L to R) are Scott Cress, Amy Huntington, Marjorie Ahrens, Mal Kitson, Jerry Cunningham, Dave Mutchler, and John Eyre. Col. Holmes served in the Civil War and the Spanish American War.

On May 17, Chatham-Madison Kiwanis members placed American flags at the Fair Mount Cemetery in Chatham. Every year about this time, the club observes Memorial Day by placing flags at gravesites of USA Veterans. Members walked among the gravesites looking for a metal plaque identifying the Veteran and branch of service – then placed a flag beside the gravestone. Bob Huntington, past president of the club and Navy Veteran, helped organize the work and obtained flags from Morris County.
Kiwanians Nancy Holt, Pat Davidson, Mary Anne Maloney and Bob Huntington pause for a photo beside the gravestone of Veteran Earle Furman.
