Volin Turtle Races to host traveling Veteran memorial

Volin Turtle Races to host traveling Veteran memorial
In a joint effort with The University of South Dakota Veterans Club, The Volin Turtle Races will host the USD Veterans Club traveling flag memorial this weekend.

The display consists of a flag for each military service person killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Past displays of this memorial have proven it to be a somber reminder of the sacrifices of our veterans.

The display will be available for viewing from the evening of Saturday, June 9, until Monday evening, June 11. A hillside on the south side of Volin has been selected for the display.

Of special interest is a visit by Tour de Kota bicyclists to Volin on Monday. The USD Veterans club is escorting a disabled veteran who is riding on the tour and will stop at the memorial.

Due to the large number of flags – around 3,800 – volunteers are needed to help set up on Saturday at 1 p.m. The public is invited to visit the flag memorial over the weekend.

Feel free to call Kari Jensen at (605) 267-2049, Jason Vollmer at (605) 267-2437 or visit us on the Web at www.turtleraces.com with any question.
