Flag Raising Efforts all for Naught
A few weeks ago I posted a picture of a flag in Quincy that was tattered and torn and needed to be removed. So with the help of Dawn Whitcomb at the Illinois Veteran's Home who provided me with a new flag, Tim Gottman of Sign Pro and I proceeded to take down the tattered flag and replace it with the new one. That effort was successful at least until yesterday when I went past the location around 8th and Broadway in Quincy. The flag is gone and the pole that it flew on looks to have been hit by a vehicle and was knocked to the ground. Here is what the flag originally looked like before being replaced.
This is what it looked like after we replaced it.
OK, the pole is down, so where is the flag?
