Cactus Valley residents create 38-foot Memorial Day flag
On May 29, Cactus Valley Retirement Resort unveiled a hand-sewn American flag of massive scale. The large flag was sewn together by the retired residents of the community using sheer materials, which allow light to pour through it.
The Stars and Stripes were revealed and hung from the third floor of the community’s Main Street on Memorial Day, creating a patriotic display.
The flag measures up to 38 feet in length and 13 feet in width, and it will be on display until Labor Day.
