Gipson Funeral Home hosting 4th annual Avenue of Flags this weekend

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Memorial Day is a day to remember all who have served this country and a Lufkin funeral home is hoping to make it a very special weekend.

Gipson funeral home is hosting its 4th annual Avenue of Flags event all weekend long at the Garden of Memories Memorial Park.

They are asking for anyone with loved one's buried there to come out and pick up a free flag and place it at the grave site.

"I think it is very important for all of us in our community and across the nation to stop and reflect for those who have given their lives for our country and for our veterans who are still living," said David Nichols, General Manager of Gipson Funeral Home.

The events will end on Monday with a special service open to the public at 11 A.M. at The Garden of Memories Memorial Park.
