Flag Retirement Ceremony
The Lake View Cemetery, in conjunction with the Greater Cleveland Council, Boy Scouts of America, will conduct a Flag Retirement Ceremony 4:00 p.m. on Flag Day, June 14th at the Cemetery.
The public is invited to attend this solemn ceremony as a Boy Scout Honor Guard pays tribute to those flags, which have served well and earned their proper place in history. The ceremony will be conducted at the Main entrance to The Lake View Cemetery at 12316 Euclid Avenue.
If you cannot attend the service and have a flag needing retirement, please bring it to the Lake View Cemetery Office, on or before June 14th. For further information call Mary Krohmer at the cemetery office, 216-421-2687. FREE
