Just before the break of dawn on Veterans Day, a local service club unveil a patriotic display to honor the veterans that served our country.

The Avenue of Flags is a fund raising project that was adopted by Optimist international, which involves putting Flags out in front of Businesses, homes and schools on certain holidays through out the year through sponsorships. For the past 6 years, the Delphos Club has been getting community support to put out 300 to 400 flags around the city and the response has been incredible to this project.

Keith Kramer, Delphos Optimist Club member says "People drive by giving you the thumbs up, beep the horn you name it. We had a veteran stop on his Harley Davidson and salute one of our members and brought tears to his eyes.  It’s very moving to see all of these flags here.  In our country we really should be respecting this, and in our town we do."

The flags stayed up until dusk today, then the members with the help of the Delphos Boy Scouts, retired the colors until the next the next time they will be put on display on Memorial Day.
