Anyone who has passed by the station lately will notice a new addition. A new 25’ high gleaming white flagpole. What started as a casual conversation between VRA staff, and Columbia Bank personnel at Hawthorne Day planted the seeds of thought for Columbia to donate the flagpole to the station. As you can see, thanks to Columbia Bank, those discussions resulted in a beautiful addition to our station. The VRA has obtained a plaque to be mounted at the site, crediting Columbia with the donation. As soon as the weather breaks, we will be having a dedication ceremony with all parties in attendance. Stay tuned for the date.
