Decorating for the Day

Posted: Thursday, July 11, 2019 10:40 pm

Mountain Grove is all decked out in red, white and blue for the Memorial Day holiday weekend thanks to the efforts of several local organizations and volunteers.

The Avenue of Flags can once again be enjoyed by visitors to Hillcrest Cemetery located just off highway 95 across from Wal-Mart. The flags were set this year by members of American Legion Post 30 of Mountain Grove.

In addition to the Avenue of Flags, more than four hundred grave marker flags were set this year. A host of volunteers from Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3770, Tri-County Veterans Association and members of Boy Scout Troop 50 all aided in placing the flags on graves at the cemetery.

In addition to the flags placed at the cemetery, nearly 180 flags were placed around the square in Mountain Grove and in front of a number of local businesses by the American Legion Post 30.
