LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – While many of you were sleeping in on Memorial Day morning, the men of Group C at Lafollette Fire Department were up and at it early. They were preparing Downtown Lafollette for Memorial Day.
In honor of the men and women that gave so much, they placed Old Glory down both sides of Central Avenue.
After that they raised the flag in the center of town at Central and Tennessee Avenue, where she will wave until this afternoon. That’s when the crew will return to put her away along with the other flags lining Central. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 05/29/2023-NOON)
