The public is invited to a ceremony where U.S. Rep. Will Hurd will present a flag flown over the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., to Mayor Don McLaughlin, representing the city of Uvalde. The flag is being offered to be flown at the grave of John Nance Garner.

The ceremony will be held on Saturday at 3 p.m. at the Uvalde Cemetery, 1301 W. Main St.

John Nance “Cactus Jack” Garner III died on Nov. 7, 1967. He was the 32nd vice president of the United States, serving from 1933–1941 in the administration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Councilman Everardo “Lalo” Zamora will welcome guests, Boy Scout Troop 479 will lead the pledge of allegiance, and Alonzo Sanchez will play “Taps.”

A documentary film crew from HBO will be in attendance as they film Hurd for a project in the works.
