Rowena Nickell, of Smithton, center, and her husband Dennis, right, help place flags in front of the gravestones of military veterans early Saturday morning at Crown Hill Cemetery. "This is our first year doing this; we heard on the radio that they needed volunteers," she said. Larry Brooks, with the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2591 and manager of the Memorial Day flag project, said there were a lot more volunteers this year than last year. "We placed about 3,000 flags," he said. It took an hour for the volunteers, from kids to adults, to place the flags. Afterward the volunteers were treated to a free breakfast by the 40&8 at the American Legion Post on West Main Street.
