WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (MASS APPEAL) – West Springfield is commemorating Veterans Day with hundreds of 3 by 5 foot flags that made their appearance thanks to the West Springfield Lions club.  Each flag bears the name of a West Springfield veteran. The Lions club is raising money for its scholarship fund, which benefits deserving young people in town.  We learned more about the display with John Ladue of the West Springfield Lions club and Mayor William Reichelt.
