SLIDESHOW: American Flags hung in Alaska Junction for the Fourth
By David Rosen
Don, a handy-man from the West Seattle Junction Association sets up American flags every year on the fourth of July in the West Seattle Junction from SW Oregon St. to SW Edmonds St. He has been doing this for about 9 years now since he has been a member of the Junction Association for about 10 years.
This year he asked for the help of volunteers to help him put up the flags due to some health issues. Members of the Seattle Police Department were out with him this morning setting up the flags. The flags will be up from 7:30 am-6:00 pm. Each business along the flag route paid for their flag which was a one time fee of $50.00.
