Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Annual Memorial Day Program presented by the Remsen VFW and American Legion did not take place this year, but the members of the VFW and American Legion still made sure to honor those who have fallen by putting up the flags on the Washington St. Boulevard for Memorial Day, which was Monday, May 25.

Ordinarily, the Avenue of Flags gets displayed on the Washington St. Boulevard, Happy Siesta Health Care Center, Bavarian Meadows Assisted Living, Remsen Cemeteries, St. Mary’s Catholic Church, St. Paul Lutheran Church, Christ Lutheran Church, and MMCRU School, but this year just the Washington St. Boulevard was utilized for the Avenue of Flags.

The Avenue of Flags honors the 386 individuals who are no longer here to commemorate this Memorial Day.

Flags were also present on the lamp posts in the downtown area.
