BRODHEAD - Local National Mutual Benefit Branch 101has donated a new 30' tall flag pole and 6' x 10' American flag to Brodhead's Legion Park. The flag display will also include a 3' x 5' P.O.W. flag, as well as a dusk-to-dawn lighting system.

After a recent park renovation, the flag pole was taken down and not replaced, until now.

Representatives of National Mutual Benefit Branch 101 presented the flag to the City of Brodhead in a flag dedication ceremony on Thursday, Oct. 2, at Legion Park. Branch members, city officials and local veteran's groups attended the ceremony.

Branch President Evie Schwartzlow and other Branch Board members believe Legion Park is an important part of the Brodhead area and wanted to help make it a better place. Branch 101 has had a connection with Legion Park for many years, holding benefit softball tournaments to assist Brodhead residents.
