Nearly a year ago, vandals struck the Masonic Cemetery in Des Moines, taking American flags and damaging flag poles.

Since then, manager Andrew Robinette says they've been able to replace many of the flags, but still need about 70-poles and 65 flags.

He says they hope to have the rest of the flags and poles replaced before Memorial Day weekend.

The Masonic Cemetery is located next to the Glendale Cemetery, on University Avenue.
