For a Veteran's Day fundraiser we are making Veteran Flag displays which will show the Veteran's name and his/her branch of service.  The cost is $5.00 each.  They will be displayed on the lawn of McHouls Funeral Home in Hopewell on Rte 82 on Veteran's Day.  If someone wishes to purchase one and keep for use at home or a cemetery the cost is $10.00.  An example is shown below.
