Seward’s Parade of Flags

Marv Taylor led a Kiwanis Flag Pole Committee this fall in getting a “Parade of Flags” display established along highway #34 on the east entrance to Seward. The display includes the U.S. flag on a 50 foot pole as the center-piece. It is supported by flags from all the branches of the Military plus the POW/MIA flag. In addition, all 50 State flags are displayed along either side of a 180 foot walkway. Marv asked me to take pictures during the construction which has enabled the forming of this collage. The flag display adds to the City’s claim of being the Country’s Small Town, 4th of July City. In addition, the Nebraska National Guard Museum is being relocated here in Seward. A multi-million dollar project in converting the 1950’s National Guard building into the Museum will be completed during 2015. Seward’s location of being only 25 miles from the Capital City of Lincoln and 6 miles off I-80 makes our small town of 7,000 people an ideal location for attracting industry and a “destination” point for many visitors.
