Flags are flyin’

When the new addition to Timber Lake School was built, the old flag pole was not replaced. Over the past several years, options were considered and it was decided to hang three flags from the front of the new building.

This week the job was accomplished and the flags of the United States, the State of South Dakota and the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe hang on three ten-foot poles. They are lit at night. Marty Biegler’s crew completed the work on Monday.
