Downtown Flag Corridor honors veterans

Published: Tuesday, May 21, 2013 5:30 a.m. CST

Flags are flying high on Williams Street in downtown Crystal Lake. More than 24 American flags and flagpoles were purchased from The Flag Store in Crystal Lake to create a Flag Corridor to honor veterans.

This project is a cooperative effort among Downtown Crystal Lake/Main Street, Crystal Lake American Legion Post 171, and the city of Crystal Lake.

The Crystal Lake Memorial Day parade is at 11 a.m. Monday.
