An important mission of the Bloomer area veterans is to promote the display of the American Flag. It is through the dispay of this cherished symbol that we show patriotism and pride for what the United States represents. An American flag kit containing a twenty foot pole and flag were offered for a drawing by the American Legion Post 295, Amvets Post 6440, and Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6175.
Stacey Castillo, of New Auburn, won the drawing for an American flag kit during the Bloomer Fair. The name was drawn Monday following the fair. Tino Pahulu, commander of the American Legion Post 295, Charlie Rubenzer, 1st Vice commander of VFW Post 6175 and Tom Vodacek representing Amvets Post 6440 presented the flag kit. Witnessing the presentation are Quintin, Aviella and Elias.
