The VFW post 9064 in Elsberry recently purchased a beautiful flagpole and donated it to the Lincoln County Old Threshers. Several members of the VFW post 9064 prepared the site to pour concrete at the flagpole base. Davis Redi Mix poured the concrete and later informed the members of VFW post 9064 that they donated the concrete used. A bronze plaque reading, “This flagpole donated by the VFW Post 9064 in Elsberry 2013” was furnished by the Lincoln County Old Threshers and affixed to the concrete base. Saturday, August 10, members of the VFW Post 9064 held a raising ceremony of the flagpole at the Old Threshers Grounds. The VFW will be caring the colors at the start of the parade each day of the show Sept. 20, 21 and 22 and will raise the flags each morning at the newly installed flagpole at 9 a.m. followed by a prayer.
