flags

National, state, and military flags fly at full-mast at the Veterans Grove during the afternoon of Memorial Day.

A ceremony was not held at the Veterans Grove on May 25, due to the novel coronavirus situation. However, the Elk Grove city staff lowered the U.S., POW-MIA, and California state flags to half-staff at sunrise and later raised them to full-staff at noon. They followed advice from Elk Grove’s American Legion Post 233.

U.S. flags were also placed along Elk Grove Boulevard and Elk Grove-Florin Road to honor military servicemen and women that day.
