The American Legion will be accepting requests on Saturday for flags and crosses to be displayed this upcoming Memorial Day.

Legion personnel will be in front of Traders Bank at the entrance to Walmart in Winchester from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Requests will be accepted at that time or questions can be handled by personnel.

Commander Ray Cobb said the cost of the flags and crosses is still a one-time $85 donation.

“These crosses and flags represent deceased veterans whom at one time lived in Franklin County,” he said.

The Memorial Day deadline to order a flag and cross is May 1.

To place an order by phone, call Cobb at 931-308-8914.
