This was a relatively small ceremony compared to the one we attended in 2009.  The William Barron Chapter of Tyler holds this ceremony each year in June.  They had approximately 150 flags which are collected by and folded by the Tyler Fire Department.  Fred Preston, past Pres. of the Lt. Nathan Gann Chapter in Lufkin brought 80 flags collected in Angelina County.
