Letter to the Editor 11-22-13
Veterans Day this year was a foggy damp cool day. Nevertheless, 20 volunteers arrived at Pleasant Hill Cemetery at 8 a.m. to place the 200 flags at the Avenue of Flags. Two ladies from the Auxiliary brought coffee and donuts for the volunteers.
At 4 p.m. the volunteers came to take down the flags to take them to the Legion to be folded and put away. As they were being taken down, lo and behold, one pole was empty. Someone had decided that he or she needed a flag. It has the veteran's name and number written at the top of it.
I can't understand who would do such a thing. I have some flags that I give to anyone who flies the American flag. I keep some in the trunk of my car and at home so if anyone wants one, just let me know.
I appreciate all the volunteers who come to help. It is greatly appreciated.
I also want to thank Les, and Russell for repairing the rope and hooks at Cloud Village, so there is now a flag flying there. As we are getting older, we appreciate all the younger ones. Once again, a great big thanks to all of you who volunteer.
Thanks to all veterans, who have served, and all who are serving. GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU.
Avenue of Flags Secretary
