PHOTOS: Flag placement at Rosebud Cemetery in Glenwood

COVID-19 couldn’t stop over 100 people from showing up to help place more than 500 flags with the graves of veterans at Rosebud Cemetery on the Friday before Memorial Day in Glenwood. Multiple scout troops and volunteers helped to put out the flags that were provided by the Rotary Club of Glenwood Springs and the American Legion. Social distancing and face coverings were used as safety precautions.
