Volunteers needed for an act of remembrance and gratitude. The “Flags In Project” brings together groups and citizens from the local area to honor interred veterans at the Warrenton Cemetery. Volunteers will meet at the cemetery to place over 900 American flags at the graves of our fallen heroes. “People in this country would not have the life they do without freedom,” said Lulu Baer, coordinator for the John D. Sudduth American Legion Post 72’s “Flags In” project. “Members of the military give up their own freedom to ensure that we have ours and we owe them big time.” Volunteers will also be needed Saturday, Nov. 19 for “Flags Out”, the removal of the flags.
