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.
