Two local organizations will host a flag raising ceremony to celebrate the new patriotic roundabouts on the east side of Jefferson City.

The East Side Business Association and the American Legion Post 5 will host a Raise the Flag ceremony at 9 a.m. June 26 near the roundabout closest to Walmart, 401 Supercenter Drive.

The ceremony will dedicate the two roundabouts at the intersection of U.S. 50 and East McCarty Street.

ESBA and the American Legion Post 5 partnered to add patriotic displays to the two roundabouts. Several businesses and individuals have also donated materials, services and money toward the project.

The north roundabout contains a 6-foot-tall eagle statue on top of a black granite pedestal, while the south roundabout has a 40-foot-tall flagpole. A pentagon-shaped monument containing patriotic messages sits at the base of the pole.

Attendees can park in the Walmart parking lot and gather at the Central Bank ATM lot.

Missouri Sen. Mike Bernskoetter, R-Jefferson City, will be the keynote speaker. There will also be patriotic music and donor recognition.
