Contrary to misleading statements/innuendo made by the Shirley Board of Selectmen, Shirley American Legion Post 183 will absolutely be placing American flags in the cemeteries as we have in the past. Date and time will be established this week and published in local news media.

As stated in the letter to the town BOS, and presented to the town administrator at a meeting on 10 April, Post 183 will also conduct Memorial Day Observances by placing flowers and wreath at the various locations as we have in the past. This is our DUTY. Schedule will be forthcoming.
