Under cold and damp weather during the Memorial Day weekend, the Scouts from Seattle Betsuin Temple placed US flags at the gravesites of Nisei Veterans interred at Evergreen-Washelli cemetery.  

This annual event was directed again by Craig and Sheila Omoto.  Sheila is the daughter of the late Tosh Okamoto who originally organized the flag laying. The boys from Troop and Pack 252, under the direction of Scoutmaster Rob Ketcherside and Cubmaster Katherine Brownlee, placed over 350 flags at the graves of the Nisei veterans buried at Evergreen-Washelli.
