Celebration of flags
August 27, 2020
The Town of Cathlamet hosted a program Tuesday morning to celebrate the installation of a flag pole at Town Hall and the donation of two Flags. Veteran Bob Roche of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5297 donated a huge US flag; state Senator Dean Takko donated a Washington State flag, and Puget Island resident donated the flag pole.
According to a statement from Town Hall, "The new Town flagpole was acquired at the direction of Cathlamet Mayor Dale Jacobson. Mayor Jacobson personally oversaw arrangements to acquire and install the new Town flagpole. The only direct expense incurred by the Town was the pulley system attached to the pole."
