Flags at Woodlawn

A southern wind brings U.S. flags to attention at Woodlawn Cemetery in a past year

Oelwein American Legion member will be placing small flags on the gravestones on Thursday, May 21, at Woodlawn Cemetery from 9-11 a.m., or until they run out of flags to distribute. They would appreciate many volunteers to help but, because of the Covid-19 they are spacing out times to avoid a cluster of volunteers all at once. Come after 9 a.m. and you will be given a bundle flags and a map as in past years. Masks are optional.

The big flags will be put up on Friday morning but the American Legion is not  need of more helpers.
