The Risen Lord Cemetery in Oswego, the newest cemetery of the Joliet Catholic Diocese, has begun waving the flag, courtesy of an Oswego Eagle Scout.

Brandon Hunt, 17, a senior at Oswego High School, worked with Lugenia Thomas, a family representative for the diocese, on having a flag pole put up at the cemetery as part of his Eagle Scout project.

The flag pole was installed at the cemetery on Simons Road on Wednesday, and will be dedicated in a ceremony on Memorial Day.
