Volunteers are needed this Saturday morning to help decorate veterans’ graves at the McPherson Cemetery in preparation for the Memorial Day services on Monday.  

Local members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the McPherson American Legion will be putting up the Avenue of Flags at the cemetery along with over a thousand crosses on individual grave sites.

The American Legion will provide refreshments for the volunteers beginning at 8:00 Saturday morning. They hope to have the flags and crosses displayed no later than 10:30.

For more information, contact Dan Hervey at the McPherson American Legion. The number there is 620-241-2700.
