As a long-time resident of the Manor Oaks School District, I would like to address the issue of the condition of the flagpole in front of the school.
Both my children attended Manor Oaks School and each morning I watched as George Keenan raised the flag with pride. I shudder to see it now. The pole is badly rusted and weather-beaten. I’m ashamed to think of our flag flying on a pole that is in such a disgraceful condition.
I hope my fellow residents will support me when I ask that this be corrected. In spite of the economic conditions in the country, I would like our flag to be displayed at our school with pride as it has been in the past.
