I have written about the Seward Kiwanis Parade of Flags project in the past but have not shown this picture. The project was recognized at the Chamber of Commerce recently as a commendable addition to the City. This picture was taken a few weeks ago and we have had snow cover for the past 2-3 weeks which has really made the color of the Flags stand out. At this time only the U.S. and Service flags are lighted but plans are underway to provide some lighting for the 50 State Flags. East Seward street if about a quarter of a mile north of highway #34 where the Flags are located. One of Seward’s most popular residential developments, Ridge Run, is located on East Seward St. Since Granddaughter Julie and John Owens and our Great Grandchildren live out in Ridge Run, we drive out quite frequently. The Flags seems to be even more colorful viewing them against the sun from Seward Street. Seward has a most attractive entrance into our City with the Flags on one side of Highway #34 and Heritage Park recognizing the first settler of the City with a State Historic Marker and little park on the other side. The Hiker-Biker trail follows Plum Creek on the eastern side of the City and is adjacent to both of these points of interest. These sites would not have been available but for a “Flood Plain” buyout program a few years ago.
