Ceremonial Pole flags

The darkness is long gone and it was time for new ceremonial pole flags to be brought out to their summer locations. Flags from last summer will be given out to twelve members of our winter over crew in the middle of October. Usually it is done with a raffle drawing lead by the station manager.
