The flag flying over the bandstand during January is in honor of Melvin Winegar.
Melvin joined the US Army on September 8, 1965 and served as an aircraft mechanic in Vietnam for almost 11 months. After his discharge, August 22, 1967, his love for aviation continued and eventually led to him becoming the manager for the Oskaloosa Municipal Airport, where he served for 25 years. Mel continued with his love for all things mechanical at Pella Corporation, where he worked as a maintenance technician before retiring in 2017.
