Verification of this information in process (cemetery referenced): The Twin Lake Methodist Church owned and operated the cemetery before giving it to Dalton Township.
Dalton Township's Twin Lake Cemetery has both a Veteran Monument and a Veteran Board in honor of those who have served. Behind the monument stands the American Flag, and behind, the five military branches. The Veteran Board is an ongoing effort of listing all of the Twin Lake Cemetery veterans; the board is updated annually prior to Memorial Day.
Annually Dalton Township supplies an American Flag on the grave space of each known U.S. known Veteran in all three of the cemeteries within Dalton Township's boundaries.
If you are aware of a U.S. Veteran's grave that is missing a Veteran flag at any of the three cemeteries OR if you are aware of a U.S. Veteran buried or memorialized at Twin Lake Cemetery but not listed on the Veteran Board, please contact Lori Hayes at 231-332-6703.
