Legionnaires seek veterans’ flags for Akron’s Avenue of Flags

Posted May 18, 2018 at 9:12 pm

Albert E. Hoschler American Legion Post No. 186 members are preparing for their annual Memorial Day Services and Avenue of Flags on May 28.

If anyone has a flag of a deceased veteran that they would like to donate to the Memorial Day Avenue of Flags in Akron, please call Legionnaire Stan Rolfes at 712-568-3492. If no answer, please leave a message.

The Legionnaires ask for a donation of $25 to cover the cost of the staff for the flag.

In order to make all of the preparations for the Memorial Day Program, they ask that donors contact Rolfes by May 20, at the very latest.

The Flags that are donated this year will be dedicated at the Memorial Day Program on May 28 in Akron.

Flags donated after May 20 can still be dedicated into the Avenue of Flags, but the deceased person’s name may or may not appear on the printed Memorial Day Program. Flags must be donated by May 26 for this year’s program.

For more information, please contact Stan Rolfes at 712-568-3492.
