The 30-by-50-foot Marion County Patriot American Flag now flies atop a 125-foot pole overlooking I-79 in Fairmont. A dedication ceremony was held on Flag Day with local citizens and dignitaries in attendance. The tallest flagpole in the area is part of the Korean War Memorial being built at the East Marion County Park. Contributions are still needed to purchase and maintain replacement flags. This flag will be a symbol of local pride and patriotism that people will be able to see, night and day, for many, many years to come.
