Tuesday, Feb. 20., after several years’ hiatus and in the pouring rain, the Boy Scouts once again raised the flag–and a new one to boot–at Heritage School in Stockbridge. Friday afternoon they plan to lower it, and they intend to repeat the ceremony each week.

“We have not had students do this in several years,” Deanna Kruger said. Kruger, who works at Heritage, complimented Jennifer Schipul for taking charge of the renewed activity. The flag-raising took place between 8:30 and 8:50 a.m.
