After a strong storm this past summer shattered the window in the south end of the north building and tore the flag that hung there beyond repair, a new flag was hung by Tim Collins on Saturday, Oct. 14. Many may remember the original flag hung after the tornado in 2007 had special meaning. The original flag donated by the deWayne and Tina Lemons family started its career in the United States Navy, flying above the decks of the carrier USS Independence. It was fitting at that time for the flag to be displayed where an unforeseen event caused so much damage. Still proud to be Americans, it was important to the Brand family to rehang a new flag to remind everyone that enters our facilities what it means to be an American and a business in the USA.
