Flagpole Dedication Ceremony at Malchow Plaza

The American flag flies proudly atop a newly installed flagpole in Malchow Plaza, installed by Kyburz-Carlson Construction.

A Flagpole Dedication Ceremony was held today on the plaza and included the inaugural flag raising, words from Aberdeen Mayor Travis Schaunaman and the National Anthem sung by Kyanne Galbraith.

The project is a collaborative effort between the Aberdeen Area Chamber’s Military & Veterans Committee and the Exchange Club of Aberdeen.

Patriot’s Day was chosen as the date of the Flagpole Dedication Ceremony to recognize and remember those who were injured or died during the terrorist attacks in the United States on September 11, 2001.
