The flag site exits because of the vision and dedication of prior Committees with the generosity of the citizens of Somerset County, PA.
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.

Welcome
To the official site of the Somerset County Flag Committee, Inc.

July 2017

Since we intend to fly a flag all year. We hope to reduce our electric bill with an new energy efficient LED system. When the initial system was installed three lights were installed. Two of those lights were removed years ago, probably to reduce costs. The single light currently in service is a 1500 watt bulb. A three light arrangement is the preferred night lighting. The Committee has received a $1,300 quote for a three light system that will use three 26 watt LED (78 watt) lights. Installation costs will be donated by the contractor.

If you would like to support the change, a donation of any amount will be appreciated. Please mail your donation to the Committee at P O BOX 1172, Somerset, PA 15501.

Our big flag was lowered for repairs. High winds last weekend damaged the flag. One of our winter flags was raised. We hope to have another big flag up in a few days.
