HARRISBURG -- Scouts from Harrisburg placed flags by veterans' graves Wednesday evening to prepare for Memorial Day.
Cub Scouts, Scouts from 7023B (boys) and 7023G (girls), parents and Scout leaders worked together to place flags at Sunset Lawn, Sunset Hill and Sunset Garden cemeteries for about two hours.
It wasn't without challenges.
Besides the sheer size of the three cemeteries maintained by the city, a popup rainstorm lasted for about 30 minutes nearly as soon as volunteers started placing flags.
Harrisburg Mayor John McPeek joined the Scouts to thank them for spending time remembering veterans buried at the cemeteries.
Harrisburg will hold its annual Memorial Day remembrance at 10 a.m. Monday at the veterans memorial area.
