On Saturday, Flag Day, members of the VFW Post 3922 raise the American flag for the first time at the Wadena Veterans Memorial on the southside of Sunnybrook. More than 50 people attended the dedication ceremony. The 50-foot Navy mast pole is the first phase of an extensive Veterans Memorial, which is slated to have granite walls with the names of each deceased veteran from the area, in addition to displays of military equipment, an observation deck over Whiskey Creek and a local military museum. To purchase granite pavers or park benches, call (218) 631-1672. Donation checks can be sent to Veterans Memorial Park, 414 1st St. SW, Wadena, MN 56482.
