No flags on Veterans Day

No flags on Vets Day

Several people in and around Ashland wondered why flags weren't flying on Veterans Day Wednesday. As you know, this is one of the federal holidays that the Kiwanis Club annually recognizes by placing flags in downtown Ashland and along Siskiyou Boulevard.

The reason they were absent on Veterans Day was due to the weather. Unfortunately, the rainy weather prevented the placement of flags this year. Of course, the Kiwanis Club fully supports the Veterans Day holiday.

We'll try to make up for this by placing flags on another day later this year or early next.
