Veterans Buried in Fairmount Cemetery Honored by Chatham Kiwanis

On May 27 twelve members of the Kiwanis Club of the Chathams placed flags at the graves of United States of America Military Veterans buried in Fairmount Cemetery in Chatham Borough. Bob Huntington, past president of Kiwanis Club and Navy Veteran, obtained the flags and organized the work. Members walked among the gravesites looking for metal plaques identifying the Veteran and branch of service. When one was found, a flag was placed beside the gravestone. In 1975 The Chatham post 92 of the American Legion erected a Veteran’s Memorial at the base of the flagpole located in the center of the cemetery. The Kiwanis club placement of Memorial flags has been an annual event for several years.

The photo above, taken by Dick Plambeck, shows a flag placed beside the gravestone for a Revolutionary War veteran.
