LAKE COUNTY – The Avenue of Flags will be flown at county cemeteries on Memorial Day, May 26, in remembrance of men and women who served their country.

An estimated 800 flags – which once decorated the caskets of veterans – will be flown at Hartley, Lower Lake and Upper Lake cemeteries on Memorial Day.

The Avenue of Flags flies twice a year – Memorial Day in May and Veterans Day in November. Families of veterans donate the flags to the Avenue of Flags Association for the display.

The flags will go up at 7 a.m. and be taken down at 4 p.m.

Community groups and volunteers assist with the avenue, and volunteers once again are invited to take part.

For more information or to volunteer contact the following Avenue of Flags organizers:

Frank Parker, Upper Lake Cemetery, 274-9512;

Dean Gotham, Hartley Cemetery, 350-1159;

Joel Moore, Lower Lake Cemetery, 994-5342.
