Altamont Enterprise February 7, 1919 – The Altamont Enterprise


The large service flag that we have looked upon with pride during the last few weeks, and the two Liberty Loan Honor flags, floating on either side, at the intersection of Main street and Maple avenue, were blown down during the gale Sunday and were badly bedraggled before they were picked up the following morning. These flags have done all the good they possibly can in the open and in order to preserve them for future generations to gaze upon and learn something of the history of our village, it might be well if those having the matter in hand would take steps to place them in some public place and under cover. At present the flags are still exposed to the elements, and it is time that some action was taken to save them from destruction.
