Dateline: Sunday, August 24th 2014
Old Glory is back up and flying again in Eagle County’s Mid-Valley.
OK – our chosen photo is a bit dated…however the lack of Wind and unseasonable August weather – did not give the ECT folks a good photo op – this past weekend!
The Bull Wheel (read: pulley) at the top of the Flag Pole has been replaced – and Old Glory was raised again…this at a cost to Avon developer Traer Creek of about 1/2 of what Avon’s new logo cost Avon Taxpayers (~$20,000.00 – and it’s true). Local Contractors and a very tall crane were needed to complete the Flag Pole repair!
So – the next time you drive by the Wal~Mart and Home Depot on I-70 – take a look South over Eagle-Vail and ENJOY!
