With Veterans Day less than a week away volunteers are making the final preparations for the annual "Avenue of Flags" display at the Upper Alton Cemetery. 144 flags will be placed along Homer Adams Parkway this year to recognize members of the various arms of service. Nancy Schwendeman is helping organize the display again this year. She says that the display is truly breathtaking.
Schwendeman also says they are still looking for volunteers to help put up and take down the display, which will run from 6am until about 5pm on Veterans Day.
