Flags fly in downtown Auburn for Veterans Day(s)

Opelika Rd. 2017-11-11

The Civitans had flags flying in downtown Auburn for Veterans Day 2018. Since November 11 was on a Sunday, the City’s official observance was on Monday. We had the flags up Sunday morning through Monday afternoon.

The flag display is a project of the Auburn Civitan Club, the Auburn Downtown Merchants, and the City of Auburn. Flags have been flying since 1965.
