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.

The flag was lowered October 9, 2014 for the year.

David Koontz, Josh Halagan and Stew Saylor lowered the flag for repairs.
A long tear developed in the seam between the top red and white stripes.
The flag was sent out for repairs the next day and will be available for use again next year.

The Committee lowered the flag for repairs on Saturday July 12, 2014

We have another flag ready and plan to raise it July 16 at 6:00PM, weather permitting.
Having enough manpower to raise the flag and the possibility of high winds caused the delay

May 24, 2014

The Committee raised the flag for the summer on Saturday, May 24, 2014 at 1:00PM

With the help of Veterans, Jaycees, Rotary, Boy Scouts and SAR, Old Glory was raised in honor of our Veterans. The flag raised was one of our flags damaged in last year's winds. Repairs were made by the skilled workers at Abilene Boot Company. She received her first stress test in Saturday afternoon's winds. Quality Inn Master Painter, Donald Grenn, applied a new coat of paint to our barriers Saturday.
A "Quality" improvement.
