Fuquay-Varina Post Office Gets Flagpole

Posted September 20, 2005 11:43 a.m. EDT

— Fuquay-Varina's post office now has a flag and flagpole of which the town can be proud.

For months, a torn American flag flew from a light pole outside the post office.

The town manager sent a letter to the postmaster asking for a real flagpole. The town even offered to raise money to buy one.

The postmaster says the federal government approved the request and that the pole was installed with money from the U.S. Postal Service.
