Posted by Tom on 2012/5/30 10:50:00 (872 reads) News by the same author

Conditions were sunny, warm and windy when the Five Points flagpole dedication was held late Monday morning in downtown Trenton. Toward the end of the thirty minute ceremony was the raising of a large U-S flag to the top of the pole.

The flag began waving gently in the wind concluding the patriotic cemetery. Community Developer Ralph Boots, a member of the flag pole project committee, was the emcee at the Memorial Day ceremony.

Assisting members of Boy Scout Troop 99 in unfolding the flag were two Trenton firemen and Councilman Mark Robinson of the flag pole project committee.

After those attending finished singing the national anthem, several members of the V-F-W Post, led by Commander Ron Persell, provided an official Memorial Day salute right beside the new flag pole and the 12 by 18 foot U-S flag flying high.

The ceremony concluded with a large group reciting the pledge of allegiance.

Others speaking during the ceremony were Flag Pole committee chairman Mark Robinson, Bob Chenoweth on behalf of the Grundy County Museum, and retired Navy Seal Jim Bush. Music, featuring a song written about Trenton and the Five Points flagpole, was sung by Sonna Wiggins and Betty Chenoweth.
