The Avenue of Flags Military Veterans’ Association annual Memorial Day ceremony will be held Monday, May 30th, at the Visalia District Cemetery. Veterans and volunteers will place over 2300 large American flags at the cemetery  with each one marked with a deceased veteran’s name and branch of service.

There are designated teams that need our assistance.  We meet that day at 6:30 a.m. in the cool of morning. You can walk with any group and assist in unfolding a flag, attaching it to the pole or putting the pole in the ground.

At 4:00 p.m. we meet back at the cemetery to travel the same route, take down the pole, folding the flag and putting the flag in the vehicle so it can eventually go to storage. There are many helpers in the morning but the afternoon can be pretty warm.  We appreciate any time you can give, even if just an hour.  Bill and Laurel Flores will be on hand to answer any questions, or help you find a group to assist. What a great way to honor our Veterans !! Let us know if we can count on your assistance!
