To the editor:
The Hull Knights of Columbus, Council 4865, is asking the community for financial assistance in restoring and repairing its 40-foot flagpole so that Old Glory can be raised over the town of Hull once again. A GoFundme page has been created to make it easier to donate.
The flagpole, at 440 Nantasket Ave., is uniquely situated at the entrance to the Kenberma Business District. The council’s new 6-by-10-foot American flag will amass the refurbished 40-foot flagpole to provide a patriotic expression to those who pass.
Eagle Flag of America, of Hingham, has been asked to provide the following:
- repair and replace flag pulley system;
- prepare and paint flagpole with lift truck;
- provide a new 6-by-10-foot U.S. flag;
- install a new gold aluminum ball top; and
- install new cleats and braid rope.
When complete, the flagpole will look brand-new, and the American flag will be raised with pride, honor, and respect. Supporters will be invited to a special flag raising ceremony. Please consider donating to this important project.
