Masons to honor deceased veterans
SALYERSVILLE – Members with the Salyersville Masonic Lodge are currently searching for the gravesites of Magoffin County veterans in order to honor the deceased American heroes for Memorial Day.
Tyler Holbrook told the Independent, “We’re wanting to honor those from Magoffin County who have served this great nation by placing upon their graves the banner of freedom and show the families of these loved ones that their service is not forgotten.”
He said they are needing help locating the graves of local veterans so they can place flags on each grave in observance of Memorial Day.
“Help us to show our gratitude and honor these men and women,” Holbrook asked the community.
Those with information about veterans’ gravesites in Magoffin can call Holbrook at 606-367-5388 or contact any Salyersville Masonic Lodge member prior to Memorial Day.
Memorial Day is set for Monday, May 27, 2019.
