United States Flag dedicated to US service personnel at REALTOR® building

In a tribute to our United States military service personnel, past and present, the Seattle King County REALTORS® dedicated its new flagpole at a special ceremony on June 13, 2014. The new 40-foot flagpole will display our American and REALTOR® flags to thousands of travelers passing the REALTOR® building each day at the junction of I-405 and I-90.

The Association wishes to thank VFW Post 2995 Honor Guard Members Jim Beatty, James Weaver, Cecilia Maerz, Jennifer Masterjohn and Jeff Starkey, who helped raise the stars and stripes on the eve of flag day.

The flagpole was installed with voluntary donations from REALTOR® members and friends. A small brick plaza surrounding the flagpole features the names of service personnel and others, as a remembrance from those who participated in the fundraising effort.

REALTOR® President Larry Christensen thanked those attending the dedication ceremony and paid tribute to the service personnel who defend our freedoms each and every day.  A full list of contributors to the flagpole fund can be found here.
