Tamaqua American Legion members Al Breiner, left, and Ed Smith look over one of two new flag markers that Breiner made for the front of both memorial monuments. Legion members are preparing for the upcoming Memorial Day Parade, which starts at 10 a.m. on Memorial Day. Everyone is also welcome to visit the Odd Fellows cemetery after the parade for the annual memorial service and the reading of the fallen veterans from Tamaqua area within the last year. A brief service will also take place in front of the Legion at around 12:30 p.m. Everyone is encouraged to attend all the events. Call (570) 668-1234 for more information.
