Avenue of Flags is back

As Memorial Day approaches, American Legion Post 191 has announced that the annual Avenue of Flags at Graceland Cemetery is again planned.

Commander Ron Keigan said the set up for the Avenue of Flags will begin at noon on Friday with the first trailer. That is a change from previous years, due to the dedication of the veterans memorial at the corner of Hospital Drive and Red Bull Division Drive at 10 a.m.

The second trailer will arrive to be unpacked at 4 p.m.

Pickup will be held May 27 at 10 a.m. for the first trailer and 4 p.m. for the second.

Volunteers are needed for both set up and take down.

“All volunteers are needed to help unload and load the flags on both times and days. The more helpers we have the quicker we can safely put away these American flags,” said Keigan. In the event of inclement weather, Keigan said time changes would be publicized as necessary.
