A Memorial Day Weekend “Must See”

For the past couple years, I have been in awe of the beautiful flag display at Cannon Park in Carterville.

The Carterville Lioness Club will be presenting their Military Salute again from May 27-May 29, 2017 at Cannon Park in Carterville.

This display honors veterans and active duty military from all over the Tri-C area. Each flag has been purchased by someone to bear a soldier’s name. There are even names representing those that fought in wars and battles decades before us. Some have been decorated with pictures of the soldier in uniform or with flowers. It would be a great way to make those history books seems a bit more real for kids and adults. (Homeschool families, seriously consider planning a lesson around a visit to the display.)
