Downtown Luling Flagpole Dedicated

Downtown Luling Flagpole Dedicated

Through a partnership between Luling American Legion Post #177, Luling Main Street, and the City of Luling, the new Downtown Luling Flagpole was installed on Davis Street (behind the Santa Claus platform), just days after the annual Watermelon Thump. The Flag Raising and Dedication Ceremony held on Friday, June 29, was attended by more than 40 people, including City Manager Bobby Berger, City Councilwoman Jackie Campbell, Luling Police Chief Bill Sala and several downtown business owners.

The flags were raised by Veterans George Benner, Richard Whitaker and Legion Post Commander David Radke. As the flags went up, the National Anthem was sung acapela by 9-year-old Savannah Rose Heximer. Luling Main Street Vice President Isaac Anzaldua delivered a brief speech explaining the joint project and Main Street’s mission. The crowd said the Pledge of Allegiance and Texas Pledge, and Luling Main Street Manager Nikki Maxwell read a poem titled, “I am Old Glory.”

“It was very important to all of us that the flagpole was installed before Independence Day so we could show citizens and visitors our patriotic spirit,” Maxwell said. “Thanks to the teamwork of everyone involved, this project came together perfectly.”

President of the Legion’s Ladies Auxiliary, Madeline Seydler, delivered the Invocation and Benediction prayers. Members of the Luling American Legion built and donated the flagpole and the three flags now flying from it – American flag, Texas flag, and POW/MIA flag. The City of Luling donated the time, labor and industrial materials to install the 35 foot flagpole.
