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 Committee is pleased to support the 2016 MegaShow with our
"Small" flag. The 20 by 35 foot flag displayed above was offered for
the event. It was mounted with the help of Carrie and Will Young -
Navy vets - "like raising a sail". Well done!
For perspective, the wall behind the flag measures 30 feet by 62 feet. Our "Big" flag (30x60) would touch the ground and almost cover the wall. Looks smaller at the top of our 120 foot pole. Since rain is predicted for Sunday and Monday we may raise the flag at the flag site on Monday to dry her out.
As expected the flag was damp when taken down. To dry her, she was raised at the flag site. She stayed up a few weeks until high winds and snow was forcast.
