The American Legion is looking for help replacing flag poles destroyed at the Avenue of Flags at Graceland Cemetery. Over 100 flag poles are no longer usable because of the high winds that swept through Knoxville in late May. Each pole costs $25 to replace. The American Legion, VFW, and Boy and Girl Scouts erect the Avenue of Flags during Memorial Day weekend to honor our veterans. If you would like to donate, you can drop off the donation at the Iowa State Savings Bank.
