To the Editor:

The Bristol Veterans Council would like to express it’s profound gratitude to all the volunteers who assisted with replacing old flags with new ones at each veterans grave site in St. Joseph’s, Peacedale, St. Thomas, Forestville and West cemeteries.

These cemeteries along with Lake Avenue and Cross Street and Veterans Memorial Boulevard require the changing of approximately 5,500 flags. No small task. Whoever made the quote, “Many Hands Make Light Work,” was absolutely correct. We were blessed to have by far the largest group of volunteers in memory this year.

For fear of omitting someone or some group, we will simply thank the veterans organizations, elected officials, scouts and ALL those who chose to help us to always remember Bristol’s fallen heroes. God Bless You All!

Bristol Veterans Council
