Flags Festival marks 25th year
During this week’s meeting of the Jackson County Board of Commissioners, Oak Hill Festival of Flags Grand Marshal Rosemary Ross was present for the reading of a proclamation honoring the festival on its 25th year. Commissioner Jerry Hall read Resolution 100-17, which explains the Festival of Flags was first formed in May of 1992, with the first festival being held in 1993. The Festival of Flags was originally presented as an idea by longtime festival president Dan Brisker to save the Central Committee, with Central being a former school building in the village dating back to 1901. The school building is now gone, but the Festival of Flags continues on and the former school lot is now the village’s Central Memorial Park. The center of the festival is now Aetna Park. In the proclamation, Commissioner Hall urged all Jackson County citizens to show their pride for the Village of Oak Hill’s Festival of Flags, as it is “a symbol of patriotism that can be carried on from generation to generation.” Shown above from the left are Commissioner Jerry Hall, Jack Hughes, Rosemary Ross, and Commissioners Ed Armstrong and Paul Haller.
