Avenue of Flags


Currently the cemetery is simply graced with a single flag on a hill west of the administrative office.  Further several flags are placed at the entrance when a special event is taking place.  We are contemplating an expansion of this patriotic theme to extend well into the grounds.  The VA has approved the construction of our Avenue of Flags on the loops road.  Our vision is to place a flag at approximately 40 foot intervals on alternating sides of the road for nearly its entire length.

There are two variations being considered:

 

  • We may place flags on poles around the enitre cemetery loop to be flown on special occasions;
  • Another consideration has been to include the fifty state flags in this array.
