Needles, California: The City of Needles is inviting the community to help tend gravesites and place American flag on veterans’ gravesites at Needles Riverview Cemetery during 11th Annual Decoration Day being held on Friday, May 27th, 2022.
According to Needles City Manager Rick Daniels, this will be an opportunity for the community to come out to tend to the gravesites of family members and friends, and veterans’ gravesite will be decorated with the traditional white cross and American flag to honor them for their service to our country.
