Honoring Veterans

IMG_4608Over 1200 veterans are interred throughout the Sewickley Cemetery. The Saturday before Memorial Day, markers and flags are placed on veterans’ graves by a group of volunteers of all ages. The flags serve as a stirring, dignified reminder of the ultimate sacrifice these men and women have made for their country.

The year 2015 marked the 124th Memorial Day celebration in Sewickley. The weekend long festivities ended at the Sewickley Cemetery following the parade and program at Wolcott Park.
