Dear Crookston residents,

    Upon seeing the raising of the new flag pole in that will welcome those who come into town down highway 2 I feel we are now presented with a great opportunity.  Currently we have a Veterans memorial that is off the beaten path, unlike many of our neighboring towns such as Fertile, Bagley, and a number of other small communities along highway 2 east.  

    I would like the community, city council, and Veterans to take into consideration on moving the veterans memorial to the new American flag location.  Make it a stopping point a land mark for Crookston and those who visit.
