The Glendale Chamber of Commerce Military & Veterans Affairs Committee will be making history 7 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 10 by raising a permanent flag atop the highest peak in Glendale.
They’re inviting the community to take part in the special flag raising ceremony.The community is invited to participate in a human chain to carry (hand-over-hand) the flag to the newly installed flag pole at Arrowhead Point located at the Thunderbird Conservation park,where it will be permanently displayed as a point of pride for residents and visitors alike.
This event coincides with Veterans Day weekend and pays tribute to those who have served and are serving in the United States Armed Services. Show your support and patriotism by wearing red,white and blue!
“The Glendale Chamber Military & Veterans Affairs Committee has taken on the responsibility to keep the flag up to code, we will run up the mountain to lower it down to half-staff and when it’s time to raise it back up, we’ll raise it up again,” said Dr. Jeff Turney, Chair of the Glendal
e Chamber Military & Veterans Affairs Committee. While the event is free, donations are welcome to help fund the project, as the Glendale Chamber has made a 20-year commitment to properly maintain the flag.
To participate in the ceremony registration is required. Registration and donations can be made at glendaleazchamber.org/thunderbirdflag, where residents can also find additional information regarding parking, check-in, event schedule and miscellaneous details.
