If you noticed something missing from the Blue Bridge, it's not your imagination.

The beloved American Flag was taken down by the Washington DOT this week. The flag and pole got heavily damaged by recent high winds.

Luckily, The American Legion Post 34 is stepping in to raise money for a new flag and also trying to raise money to purchase back-up flags as well. The cost of each flag is roughly $500 and the group is hoping to purchase several in case of another emergency.

If you want to help out, send donations to the American Legion Post 34 to PO Box 2571, Pasco, WA 99302, or contact Flag Fund Chair Sande Payne at 509-420-0096.
