Town Center Flag Pole Goes Up In University Place

Crews were seen raising it today of the Civic Building within the last hour.

After months of discussion and debate, University Place is finally raising the flag pole in front of Town Center.

Crews raised the flag today in front of the Civic Building, just outside of the atrium. This shot of the side of the building via University Place webcam shows a worker putting it up.

So, after wrestling through such a heated issue, I think most of the community can agree on this: Thank goodness it's finally up.

It's good to see it go up. I was worried that I might forget what country I lived in whilst driving from one end of the city to the other.

Wish I could take credit for the pictures but Barbara is the only shutterbug in the family! Howard

I can't help but notice the difference in the perception I have of the one photo that has the pole, but no flag, and the same shot, with the flag...one is cold and dark..the other, warm, inviting..comforting...hopeful... a real `before' and `after' shot! I am thankful...

Was there an "official" ceremony for the flag pole's erection?, and if not, will there be?
