[ARCHIVED] Honoring Veterans on Memorial Day despite Trying Times

Porch Flag

As conducting Malden’s traditional Memorial Day Parade is not an option during these times, the City has come up with a creative way to honor the deceased friends, relatives and loved ones of Malden residents who served in the armed forces. This will be similar to the recent trend of families taking “porch photos”and sharing them online. Residents are invited to honor loved ones by taking a photo on a porch or at home holding up some type of memorial such as a photo, sign, craft or other decorations that honors their veteran family member.

Residents may snap the photo using a high-quality camera or smartphone or they may contact the City to schedule a volunteer photographer to come to the front of their house and shoot the photo at a safe social distance. To participate, please email info@cityofmalden.org or message the City’s Facebook page at Facebook.com/cityofmalden for more details.

These photo shoots will take place over the next four weeks with a deadline of Sunday, May 17, 2020. After the photos are gathered, they will be put into a video which will be shared on the City’s social media channels as well as on MATV on Memorial Day, Monday May 25, 2020.
