In preparation for Memorial Day, on Friday, May 15, several members of the Highland Amateur Radio Association assisted the Hillsboro Cemetery Association, the Highland County Historical Society and the local DAR Chapter in placing flags honoring the 900-plus veterans who are buried in the Hillsboro Cemetery.

The project took a bit more than an hour to cover the 30 acres, thanks to the number of hams and others who assisted.

The Highland ARA is an organization of more than 125 local federally licensed amateur radio operators and others interested in electronics and emergency communications.
