Avenue of the Flags Returns to Centralia for Memorial Day

A Centralia tradition is returning this weekend for Memorial Day.

The Avenue of the Flags at Centralia City Cemetery will be back for another year, but volunteers are needed to help raise the poles and flags.

Dennis Mills with Centralia’s VFW Post says there are two opportunities to help.

Mills says they get help from the Centralia FFA chapter who typically lays the poles out for them, then volunteers put the poles in the ground.

Those wanting to volunteer tomorrow (Thursday) evening should meet at the cemetery at 5.

Over 500 flags will be on display this year, honoring veterans from Centralia.
