The Avenue of Flags program will be held in the Pavilion at the Visalia Public Cemetery, 1300 W. Goshen Ave., Visalia, on Monday, May 29 starting at 10 a.m. The program includes a presentation of wreaths and patriotic music. This year there will be about 2,150 casket flags and about 3,800 grave marker flags on display.
The Avenue of Flags Committee is a volunteer group of local veterans dedicated to the preservation and storage of the flags. The flags bear the names of each veteran and are numbered for placement in the cemetery every Memorial Day.
Help is needed early on Memorial Day morning to place flags, and in the afternoon to pick them up. Pickups with trailer hitches are also needed for hauling. If you are able to lend a hand with these efforts on Memorial Day, call the Avenue of Flags Committee at (559) 300-2306.
