NORTH YARMOUTH — Veterans Memorial Park will be rededicated on Flag Day, Sunday, June 14, a day after the sixth annual Tri-NY triathlon.

The park ceremony will be held at the corner of Route 9 and Parsonage Road at 11 a.m. Children and adults will be able to place small flags honoring or remembering a veteran. Transportation is available by calling 449-7923.
