Flags for veterans, clam cakes & gazebo music: Five things to know in North Smithfield this week

Members of the North Smithfield Heritage Association did work last week at Hitchkiss Cemetery that included raising and resetting a slate headstone and foot stone.

Flag program

The North Smithfield Heritage Association is now offering to fly the memorial flags of deceased veterans for periods of 30 days at Memorial Town Hall. The organization will also publish a brief biography of each honoree’s military service in their monthly newsletter. NSHA will return the flag to the family at the end of the 30 day period, or continue to fly the flag until it is replaced by another, depending upon the family’s wishes.

To participate, email [email protected] or call (401) 651-6316.
