Peru veterans raise money for flag maintenance

Posted by wlpo on April 22, 2015

Old glory should continue flying high at Veteran’s Park in Peru thanks to a group of veterans.

Members of the Peru VFW Post 8232 have given the city a check for $500 to maintain the flags at Veteran’s Park. Alderman Dave Potthoff says that’s a tremendous help since maintaining and replacing the flags isn’t cheap.

Speaking of flags and veterans, the annual Memorial Day ceremony put on by the Peru Veteran’s Memorial Group is a little over a month away. The ceremony will be Monday, May 25th at Washington Park.
