Memorial flags

Due to the Department of Veterans Affairs prohibiting public events at the graves of veterans on Memorial Day due to COVID-19, the Boy Scouts of America will not be placing American flags at the area cemeteries. However, thanks to the generous donation of flags from ACE Hardware, the Red Bud VFW/Auxiliary will have free flags available at the Post, located at 830 South Main, on Saturday, May 23, from 8 a.m. to noon, on a first come/first serve basis. Please wear a mask for pickup. Please take advantage of this personal opportunity to honor our fallen heroes at their grave site.
