The lawn of KC Parks Tony Aguirre Community Center will be covered with American Flags this Veterans Day to honor those who serve or have served in our military. More than 200 American Flags, with names of veterans on them, will be placed on the lawn of Tony Aguirre Community Center, starting at 8:30am, Friday, November 8, 2019. The majority of those represented have friends or family who live near the community center.
The idea for this type of recognition came from Stephen Zapien, KC Parks Senior Recreation Director. Zapien wanted to have a way to honor those in this community who serve. There is a large population of veterans that utilize Tony Aguirre Community Center a regular basis, some of them will be helping with placing of the flags.
