Flag Day in Presho

Posted by Lucy

A Flag Day program was held at the Lyman County Pioneer & Veteran Memorial on the grounds of the Museum in Presho on Sunday, June 12, 2016. Chris Anderson, a former Presho resident, was the speaker at the Flag Day Celebration. Chris was a member of the Presho Community Development Corporation when the memorial was built. The group had three goals; pride in the county, working together, and bringing more people to town.
The Development group received a grant for $7,500 in 1989 with the intention of the community matching $7500. They did this by selling coats and t shirts with an insignia on it. The community brainstormed and came up with the idea that a large flag on a tall flag pole at the Lyman County Museum site would attract people off I-90 to come into Presho. The hole for the flag pole is 13 feet deep. The flag pole goes into a sleeve that is filled with sand and 13 feet of concrete poured around that. The first original flag that they bought cost $1500 and was huge (not sure of the size). The first pole they were going to use was to tall, and had to be shortened due to interference with the Presho City airport.
Today, the flag and the memorial are maintained by the Historical Society. Numerous smaller flags are positioned around the flag on Memorial Day and other holidays as volunteers are available to help.
