American Legion Riders to place flags

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.
