Tama Legion Post 73 has decided to put flags out on Saturday, May 24, at 8 a.m. for Memorial Day and take them down on Monday, May 26, at 4 p.m. We can use volunteers to help put the flags up and to help take them down. Meet at the Tama Legion or go to Oak Hill or St. Pat's Cemetery to help out.
The Legion has all new smaller flags - 126 to fly at St. Pat's Cemetery and 272 to fly at Oak Hill Cemetery. So let's be proud to help remember our Veterans who served for us.
Anyone wanting a flag for a newly deceased Veteran at Oak Hill or St. Pat's Cemetery can call Sandy Frahm, Chairman of Avenue of Flags, at 641-484-4485 or 641-691-6904. A nameplate, poles and flag will cost $100.
Come and help out Saturday, May 24, at 8 a.m. and Monday, May 26, at 4 p.m.
