The Optimist Club of Richfield is promoting its Avenue of Flags project as Memorial Day approaches. May 25 will be the first of six national holidays this year when the Optimists will be planting flags in front of homes and businesses that sign up to participate. For each Avenue of Flags day, Optimists plant the flags at dawn at the participating locations and remove the flags at dusk. It costs $40 per year to join the program, with all proceeds used to support area youth and the community. In addition to Memorial Day, designated Avenue of Flags days are Flag Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Patriot Day (in remembrance of the 9-11) and Veterans Day.
