A gust of wind swept over the patriotic crowd just as the Marines started the inaugural raising of the American flag at Talega Gallery on Nov. 10, allowing it to wave swiftly on its maiden voyage.

Talega Gallery, a community association for residents 55 and older, celebrated Veterans Day by introducing a new flagpole at the association’s headquarters.

City Council member Lori Donchak and Bobby Ameen presented the association with the flag and were also speakers at the event.

Ret. Army Col. Frank Legere, who is a resident of the association, spoke about the importance of the flag.
Boy Scouts Troop 719 helped with the ceremonies, and the 2nd Battalion, 4th Marines provided color guard duties. People sang the national anthem as the stars and stripes ascended to the top of the pole.
