HOWELLS – A flagpole dedication ceremony is open to the public and will take place this weekend.
Howells American Legion Post 155 will be holding this event for a newly erected 120’ flagpole in rural Howells. The ceremony is scheduled for Sunday, November 10 at 1:30 p.m.
The location of the flagpole is north of Howells on Highway 32, one mile east of the Highway 15/32 junction and 600 feet north on County Road 575.
Through the wishes of Ardyth Molacek, Don’s wife, the family of Don Molacek, Sr., designed, constructed and financed the site in memory of Don Sr. A 30’ x 50’ American Flag and the POW/MIA flag will be flown from the main lighted flagpole with flags of U.S. Armed Services in a semi-circle on the west side of the main flagpole.
Although the site is a tribute to Don Molacek, Sr., it serves as a tribute to all Veterans and meant to be enjoyed by all. Members of Veteran Service Organizations are encouraged to attend the dedication as well as the general public.
