There’s a new flag flying high in Southborough this week.
Yesterday, the Southborough Senior Center hosted a ceremony to celebrate the first raising of its new US flag. The pole was installed last month as part of an Eagle Scout project.
Scout Devin McCarthy worked to raise money from businesses and individuals around the community. On April 8th, fellow Troop 92 Boy Scouts helped him to dig the 3 foot pole and set the “sleeve” in concrete. On April 30th, he worked with four other scouts to raise the 25 foot tall pole.
Yesterday afternoon, Boy Scouts, Town officials and several other guests gathered for the ceremony. Veterans raised the 5′ x 8′ flag to the music of “To the Color”. McCarthy followed up with a speech thanking people for their contributions to the effort.
