Flag committee needs help Saturday

Volunteers are needed to help Ken Burton Sr. and the members of the American Flag Committee place flags in high-visibility parts of Westerly on holidays between Memorial Day and Veterans Day, including Flag Day, this Saturday.

Each year, Burton and the committee plant hundreds of “Old Glories” around the downtown area and along Granite Street to honor our country. The flag-placing begins at about 7 a.m. at the Westerly Library, and Burton also needs volunteers to help take the flags in around 4 or 5 p.m. If you’d like to help, call Ken directly at 401-348-8274.
