The flag site exits because of the vision and dedication of
prior Committees with the generosity of the citizens of Somerset County,
The current Committee is committed to the long-term maintenance of the flag site,
which is dedicated to all Somerset County veterans and to the flag pole which is dedicated to the Flight 93 heroes
If successful, our work will never be finished.
The flag site was visited the mornings of Sept 4th and 5th by
a team from the Somerset County Community Service Program.
Clean up work at the site performed.
Our sincere thanks to the team for a job well done!
The Committee raised a repaired flag on
Wednesday July 16, 2014
Committee members Martin Palguta, Mike Kuhn, David Koontz and Stew Saylor,
with the assistance of Patrick Kuhn and Peggy Saylor,
provided just enough manpower to raise a 80+ pound cotton flag.
Since 1993 when the idea of a site for a large flag was first proposed the support of the community has been outstanding.
The Committee wishes to thank everyone supporting our continuing efforts.
While it does not require a large number of Committee members to keep the flag flying, we do need "manpower"
for regular site maintenance and the raising and lowering of the flag.
If you can assist the Committee with your time, please contact a Committee member or send us an email.
