Pole at Veteran's Monument

The city council is working on permanently flying a flag on the  flag pole at the Veteran's monument in Greenwood Cemetery.

The City Council Property and Rec Committee discussed putting up a flag up permanently on the pole in the veteran’s section of Greenwood Cemetery at its last meeting, councilman Dennis Ouellette reported to the Clay Center City Council Tuesday.

Currently the pole only has a flag on it once a year -- for the annual Memorial Day Service conducted by the Center American Legion Post No. 101. However the flag they put on the pole isn’t big enough and “looks a little small” after it’s raised, even though it is a fairly large flag -- around 6 by 10 feet flag -- close to the size of a US field flag.
