Citrus Heights community members and leaders gathered on Sept. 11 to dedicate and unveil two new flagpoles at the Sylvan Ranch Community Garden.

According to a news release from the City, the dedication was set to include Mayor Sue Frost and other council members in the raising of four new “Made in America” flags, donated by the American Legion Post 637 and Boy Scout Troop 228.

From original story published Sept. 10:
“The flagpole project has been a desired improvement to the [community garden] to honor all the veterans for their sacrifice and service so that we can enjoy the freedoms of our life,” said Travis Segebart, president of the garden. The two new flagpoles will fly the United States and California state flags, along with a Missing In Action flag and Boy Scouts flag.

According to a community invite published on the garden’s website, the flagpole project was built by local Boy Scouts, along with contributions from local businesses and Post 637.
