Saturday is Flag Day. Highway 14 in Knoxville will be lined with American Flags, courtesy of the Lions Club Community Pride Avenue of Flags project. Ladd Montegna says they had about 115 flags raised on Memorial day; and through donations from the community, they’re up to about 300 now. He says the flags will go up Friday night to be displayed for Flag Day. Montegna asks property owners along Highway 14 that are interested in displaying flags on their property to give him a call.
