The American Legion Riders will be placing flags on the graves of local veterans.
If you are interested in helping with this, please meet at 5 p.m., at the Elm Grove Cemetery in Washington.
There are 1,200 veterans buried in Washington?s two cemeteries. A flag will be placed on each veteran?s grave.
At 5 p.m., Monday, May 28, the group will meet again to remove the flags. Your help either day is great appreciated.
If you know of a veteran who hasn?t had a flag placed on his/her grave in the past years, please contact Ron Northup at 319-653-8697.
