I-81 FLAG: In the week leading up to Lee-Jackson Day in January, the ground at the I-81 site was too wet for the installation of the 80' ft. pole that was purchased. The pole will sit high on a hill, and the ground must be completely dry to prevent the crane, needed to set the pole, from slipping. Since that time, we experienced back to back to back winter storms that caused us to cancel two different scheduled installation dates. There was still standing water at the site last week, but we are anticipating several days of sunshine and wind, and hope to install the pole next week. If we are able to do so, we will have a flag raising/dedication at the site on Saturday, March 28th, at 10:00 a.m.
All are welcome/invited to attend. Please stay tuned for updates later this week with confirmation of the pole installation and more details about the ceremony.
