Scouts assist DAR with flag placing for Veterans Day 2023
Members, scout leaders and parent volunteers from Girl Scout Troops 409 & 1168 and Cub Scout Den 553 assisted the Rochelle Chapter DAR in placing flags on more than 360 veterans' graves at St. Patrick's and Lawnridge Cemeteries in preparation for Veteran's Day. These flags will also be used to assist placement of wreaths on Wreaths across America Day in Rochelle on Dec. 17, 2023. Anyone who would like to sponsor wreaths for veterans can do so online at https://wreathsacrossamerica.org/IL0136P or pick up a form at the Rochelle VFW.
