SEASIDE Local scout units prepared two local cemeteries for Memorial Day. Members of Troop 642 and Pack 540 worked with the Seaside American Legion at the Seaside Cemetery. Scouts placed an American flag at the grave of each veteran, read his headstone and rendered a salute. When each veteran had been recognized individually, the scouts raised a flag at the center of the cemetery.
Members of Troops 509 and 211 worked with the Clatsop Post 12 American Legion to prepare the Oceanview Cemetery in Warrenton. They lined the roads through the cemetery with alternating American flags and white crosses.
