Veterans to place flags in cemetery on Saturday
War veterans will be at the Portales City Cemetery at 9 a.m. on Saturday, placing flags on the gravesites of those who served in the military. Veterans are welcoming any Portales residents who want to help place flags.
Tables will be placed at the Kilgore street entrance and Third Street entrance of the cemetery. There will be veterans sitting behind the tables and giving out flags to family members if a site was missed. For information, contact Tim Marsh at 760-4195.
