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's first nylon flag was raised today. With the help
of the Somerset Volunteer Fire Department and Committee members a
polyester flag was lowered for repairs. Tell us what you think of
the new flag.
The flag was raised with the help of Greg Davis, Larry Patton and Cody Martz. They made it look easy. THANKS!
Somerset County Community Service provided the first major clean
up effort of the season at the flag site. The first afternoon
included weeding the flower gardens and sweeping the steps and
platform. The second day continued the weeding and work around the
border of the gardens and new ramp.
Our sincere thanks to the crew for their excellent work.
With mulch provided by Steve Matse, the John Adams family stread mulch at the site. The Community Service team finished the job May 28, 2015
Donations were received last year for the engraving of three paving stones. The work was compleded April 15, 2015 by Shetler Memorial's master craftsman Angelo Adolph. Additional pictures will be posted later of the work effort. Very interesting. The stones look great. Our thanks for the support.
February 17th the Committee was awarded
one of the County's Tourism grants.
The grant will be used to purchase a new 30 foot by 60 foot flag.
