American Legion Post No. 74 member David Hazelmyer said recently that people can continue to dedicate flags to veterans up until they are taken down on July 7. On that date, there will be a special ceremony, which will start at 10 a.m.
Curt Holmes, also of American Legion Post No. 74, said that last year, 256 flags were purchased, and that they have enough material for 500. As of Friday, they already had more than 100, with more on order, said Holmes. Last year was the first year that the American Legion organized this.
The American Legion has a tent near the intersection where people will be able to buy flags for $25 to dedicate to a veteran, a veterans organization or a group of veterans, and for that they get the flag and a certificate. Hazelmyer stated that 98 percent of the flags are dedicated to specific veterans.
