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.

September 2017

September 6th was a busy day at the flag site.

The site was groomed by the Somerset County Work Detail of the Somerset County Jail and greatly improved the appearance of the site.

New LED lights were installed by Krause Electric. A single light was replaced by three energy efficient LED fixtures,
Check the pictures below. Our tanks to all that helped.

August 2017

Funds have been received from American Legion Posts in Rockwood, Berlin and Somerset, and the Somerset VFW and the FOE of Somerset. These funds will cover the cost of the lighting changes. We hope to have the project completed before September 11, 2017.

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.
