Veterans & First Responders Sign

For those who have noticed the missing flag out at the Vet Sign in front of Monical’s, here is the latest update.

The old truck pulley system & halyard are completely worn out; in response we have ordered a new truck pulley system & halyard.

Though we have a 3’x5′ U.S. flag on hand, we will be purchasing a 4’x6′ U.S. flag for the pole at the Vet Sign. In addition, we will be adding a 3’x5′ POW/MIA flag to the flag display.

Sometime this spring or summer, we will be working on the landscaping around the flag and freshening up the sign itself.

To all the Men and Women out there serving our country and to All our Veterans  THANK YOU
