The Andover Townsman

---- — Michael Burke, director of veterans’ services, has announced plans to place 3,600 flags on the graves of Andover veterans on Sunday, Oct. 6, starting at 11 a.m. at Spring Grove Cemetery on Abbot Street.

Andover veterans together with Boy, Girl and Cub Scouts and interested citizens are encouraged to lend a hand with the effort. Burke says the process takes about 90 minutes and affords an opportunity to see parts of Andover’s history up close.

In case of severe inclement weather, the activity will be postponed until Sunday, Oct. 13, at 11 a.m. For more information, call the veterans office at 978-623-8218 or email Burke at
