Community volunteers and members of the Veterans Day Committee were busy this weekend placing hundreds of flags in the front yard of every veteran and active duty service member who is registered with the city.
The flags were donated by residents Warren Kelsey and Jack Wamsley, who are two of the men who helped spearhead Canyon Lake to cityhood and served on the first City Council.
The following individuals are registered with the city and will receive a flag in their honor:
