Avenue Of Flags
The cemetery near our small town of Kirk, Colo., has more permanent residents than there are taxpayers in town. We recently completed three projects which really dressed up the cemetery.
  We created what we call the Avenue of Flags, installing 50 3 by 5-ft. U.S. flags on 1-in. steel poles 11 ft. long. They're placed 30 ft. apart on each side of the entrance road. This makes a very impressive display.
  We also created a display of Veteran Service Crosses for all the veterans. The crosses are 1 ft. tall by 9 in. across with a spike on the end. They are made of pine, and painted white with three poppies attached to each one. There's a cross for each veteran who's layed to rest at the cemetery. They are set up like a military grave yard.
  We plan to set up the Avenue of Flags on Memorial Day, Armistice Day, and Veterans Day each year. The crosses will be set up only on Memorial Day.
  A special trailer was built to store and deliver the flags and crosses to the cemetery. (Joe Kuntz, 5924 Co. Rd. G, Joes, Colo. 80822 ph 970 358-4581)
