ROCKINGHAM — The JROTC cadets of Richmond Senior High School were out Friday afternoon setting up flags along East Broad Avenue in anticipation for Columbus Day on Monday.

In association with the Lions Club, the cadets put up 50 flags down the highway stopping at McDonald’s. The flags will stay up for one week, according to Ret. Lt. Col. Jon Ring, senior army instructor.

“We’re putting the flags down to spread patriotism throughout our country and throughout the county,” said Joshua White, public information officer for the Raider Battalion.
