Flag Display on Main Street in Fortuna in Honor of Memorial Day

FORTUNA, Ca. (KIEM) – Fortuna residents and business owners worked with the Fortuna “Flags-on-Main-Street-Program” to help honor those who fought for and continue to protect our country.

A half-mile long display of American flags lined Main Street to honor Veterans, all thanks to the Fortuna Sunrise Rotary Club.

Local service groups are assigned a “flag-honoring-holiday” and given the task of placing the flags up at sunrise and removing them at dusk.

A commemorative plaque purchased by a family member with an inscription of those veterans who served their country in times of war lines each flag pole.

Fortuna residents say it’s important to honor veterans, especially during this time.
