New flagpole in Jefferson Park to be dedicated


WALLA WALLA - Starting this week, Old Glory will be standing taller than ever in Jefferson Park.

Members of Walla Walla's veterans posts have made a gift of a new 30-foot flag pole to replace the old 20-foot pole at The Center at the Park, 720 Sprague Ave. The new pole will be dedicated at 11 a.m. Monday, which is Flag Day.

The new pole was donated and erected by members of American Legion Walter C. Lee Post 32, American Veterans Jonathan M. Wainwright Post 1111 and the Veteran of Foreign Wars Grant Farmer Post 992, said Jim Irwin of the American Veterans post 1111. The original flag pole was initially presented to the center in 1980 by Ame rican Legion Walter C. Lee Post 32.
