Veterans honored at local cemeteries
In observance of Veterans Day, the Cub Scouts Pack 194 and Boy Scouts Troop 194, both from Pleasanton, along with the members of Pleasanton Branch #63 of Catholic Life Insurance, honored fallen veterans on Nov. 11. They placed over 300 flags on their graves at the Pleasanton City Cemetery and San Ysidro Cemetery on Sunday, Nov. 11.
The flags were provided by the Pleasanton Branch of Catholic Life as part of their “Make a Difference Day” where they join with other local groups to do a joint community service project.
The Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts participate in community service projects throughout the year as part of their “Good Turn for America” efforts. Annually, Catholic Life donates to Project Graduation, CAM and Catholic religious education programs in Atascosa County. Additionally, flags are donated to a local school and monetary donations are made to area fire departments.
