PARADISE, Calif. - People in Paradise are keeping a special tradition alive this Memorial Day.
The Veteran Honors Project has brought the community together for the last 19 years.
Volunteers gather at the Paradise Cemetery and place American flags next to more than 2,500 veteran tombstones.
Linda Nassie, the coordinator of the event, said her son was a boy scout and created the project.
In the past, they've had 17 community groups participate but after the Camp Fire, they're down to only six groups.
"It's a community activity nearly two decades long," she said. "It's a tradition and right now we need some of that. We need to have these community events that bring us back together and see people that we haven't been able to find."
Those interested in participating can meet the group at 8 a.m. on Saturday morning in front of the Paradise Cemetery office.
