For almost 40 years, the Avenue of Flags has been a Memorial Day Weekend attraction for Garnett. Each flag represents a veteran who is buried within the Garnett Municipal Cemetery.

  Over the years the aging process has taken its toll on over 100 of these flags. Project Red, White & Blue aims to replace those tattered flags so that all veterans can be represented during the annual Avenue of Flags event.

 Each flag costs $60.  There is a veterans tag attached to each flag showing to whom the flag represents.  

  If you would like to donate to this project, please drop your donations by Garnett City Hall or send to:
