The Avenue of Flags, May 22-25, 2015.
View over 300 American flags flying with pride at the Garnett Municipal Cemetery. Each flag represents someone laid to rest within this cemetery who served our country.  The Avenue of Flags was created during the country's bicentennial year, 1976, to pay tribute to our community's bravest.

PROJECT RED, WHITE & BLUE

For almost 40 years, the Avenue of Flags has been a Memorial Day Weekend attraction for Garnett with over 300 flags flying high and proud. Each flag represents a veteran who is buried within the Garnett Municipal Cemetery.

Over the years the aging process has taken its toll on nearly 100 of these flags.  Project Red, White & Blue aims to replace those flags so that all veterans can be represented during the 2015 Avenue of Flags.

Each flag costs $60.  If you would like to donate to this project please drop your donations by Garnett City Hall or send to:

Garnett City Hall
Attn.:  Red, White & Blue
P.O. Box H, 131 W. 5th Avenue
Garnett, KS 66032

If you wish to specify your donation be to honor someone who served in the military that is laid to rest in the Garnett Municipal Cemetery, please note their name on your check in the memo area.  Thank you.
