In observance of Veterans Day, the Cub Scouts Pack 194 and the Boy Scouts Troop 194, both from Pleasanton, along with the members of the Catholic Life Insurance Pleasanton Branch #63 honored fallen veterans.

They placed over 300 flags on their graves at the Pleasanton City Cemetery and San Ysidro Cemetery on Sunday, Nov. 9.

The flags were provided by the Catholic Life Insurance Pleasanton Branch #63 as part of their “Make a Difference Day Project” where they join with other local groups to do a joint community service project, this is the sixth annual joint venture for the two groups. 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 Insurance Pleasanton Branch #63 donates to Project Graduation, CAM and Catholic religious education programs in Atascosa County. The group also donates flags to local schools, and gives monetary donations to area fire departments.
