The Vermont State Council
has been working on this project for the last three years. We have contacted all of
the State Council's throughout the United States and Guam, PR, DC, asking them to donate a
state flag from their state. That was well received by all of the states and as of
right now we have received 40 state flags not only from state councils but also from the
Veterans Home in MI, from State Senators and other people as well.
approached all of the VVA Chapters, American Legions and VFW posts here in the state and
asked them to sponsor a flag pole with a donation. Not only have they done that but
other private people have heard about this project and donated to it. Other
non-profit organizations have also contributed to our project.
On June 14th, 2001 at 2:30 PM.
We had a special ceremony with our Governor Howard Dean and General Martha Rainville as
our guest speakers. We had 55 Veterans and 55 Students from our local High School
working together to raise the flags.
