Flagpole dedication at Father Dickson Cemetery.

A dedication ceremony for the first-ever flagpole at the historic Father Dickson Cemetery in Crestwood took place Saturday — Flag Day. After learning the cemetery did not have a permanent flagpole on which to fly the American flag, members of Chapter 1028 of the Vietnam Veterans of America, including Crestwood resident Tom Ford, and other Crestwood residents raised the funds to purchase the flagpole.
