Memorial Day Flag Garden
May 26 - May 30Free
Each Memorial Day weekend since 2010, Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund (MMHF) and its volunteers have created a garden of flags on Boston Common for the long weekend. The 37,000 flags, which will be on the Common from Thursday through Monday, represent every single Massachusetts person who has given his or her life to defend the country since the Revolutionary War. This year, MMHF will work with volunteers and staff from Home Base, a partnership of the Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital which helps veterans and their families as they heal from invisible wounds like traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress. Individual volunteers can also register to help with the creation or maintenance of the garden. — Natalie Gale
