It is missing the flag on the poll on account of the lighted Christmas tree attached to it...

Sad to see Santa has forgotten to visit the kids on the Blue roads again this year.... There are families south of Blue Ridge Rd., Santa Claus.

First, a follow-up to 'B' regarding Santa Claus - he is stopping just one block north of Blue Ridge at Blue Ribbon & Pine.

Now, about what's missing from the square? A big snowplow to get it out of there! I know I'm not alone in wanting to see the flagpole gone. If the proposed village changes occur, we will see if there is relief, but if that falls through when the state and township run out of cash this year, MOVE THE FLAGPOLE! (I'll bet you can get volunteers to help.)

RE: Missing flag on the square flagpole

The flag got ripped apart by high winds, and it won't be replaced until the Christmas decorations are removed from the flagpole.
