We have all known individuals who have impacted our lives in one way or another, or who have committed themselves to unselfish service forour country, the community around them, or their family.
It was for those people, or groups,, that the Iowa Juvenile Home established the Avenue of Flags, either as a memorial or a living tribute. Any individual or organization may dedicate a flag by contacting the Iowa Juvenile Home at 641-484-2560, ext. 2305, if you would like more information regarding this project.
Cost of a flag pole, and plaque is $84. The next dedication ceremony will be planned for Memorial Day weekend,2011.
