Released: August 4, 2020

Delaware County Councilwoman Elaine Paul Schaefer and Councilwoman Christine Reuther were joined by County Controller Joanne Phillips to help raise the U.S. Coast Guard flag in honor of the founding of the Coast Guard on August 4, 1790. It will fly from the flagpole in the courtyard of the Government Center and Courthouse complex throughout the week.

Military flags will be raised at appropriate times later this year in observance of the Air Force, on Sep. 18, 1947; the Navy, on Oct. 13, 1775; and the Marine Corps, on Nov. 10, 1775. The Army flag was raised in June to commemorate the anniversary.

Thank you to all of those who have served or are serving, protecting our country.
