Flags Donated to Post 90

Jerry Olson, the administrator of Avalon Heath Care pictured to the right with Ski Ingram, Marti Bigbie, Jackie Peterson, and Terry Dunne, donated three American Flags and three Utah State Flags to American Legion Post 90. Jacqueline Peterson, the State Officer at the Southern Utah Veterans Home and member of Post 90, noticed that the American Flag flying from our flag pole was beginning to look pretty worn and that their wasn’t a flag flying from the second flag. After mentioning this to Jerry Olson he volunteered to buy six flags for the Post.  Next time you are visiting the Southern Utah Veterans Home be sure to thank Jerry for his generous gift and for being a friend to American Legion Post 90.
