On Saturday, May 24, 2015, at 9:00 a.m., the City of Cambridge’s Department of Veterans’ Services will decorate, with American Flags, the graves of Veterans interred in the War Lots of the Cambridge Cemetery. Assisting in the placing of flags will be members of the Cambridge Veterans’ Organization, Cambridge Boys Scouts, North Cambridge Little Leaguers and elected officials.
