Volunteers are being sought to plant thousands of American flags at Superior cemeteries May 21-22 to honor veterans for Memorial Day. People are encouraged to sign up in teams of two or three; children are able to help if accompanied by an adult.

Flag planting begins at 9 a.m. each day, but volunteers are welcome any time.

“If you can help for just an hour, or maybe four, we would love to have you,” said Erick Hudson, interim veterans service officer for Douglas County.

To volunteer, call 715-395-1477 or email Veterans@DouglasCountyWI.org and provide the office with a name, phone number, email, number of people on the team and their availability on May 21-22.
