By Kate Stater, Weekly Reporter

O’Fallon kicked off Memorial Day celebrations with the changing of the flags at the O’Fallon Memorial Monument. The event was attended by a small crowd of families and retired military members. The VFW participants switched out the American flag and the POW flag before doing a 21-gun salute. Everyone wore masks for the ceremony and kept the group at 10 people as a part of CDC guidelines.
