The American Legion Post #385 recently presented a new flag to fly outside Westlake High School. Jim Potter, the Post's Americanism Chairman received a call from Principal Tim Freeman's office this summer explaining that they had a new school building, but the flag outside was faded and torn.

The American Legion ordered a new flag for the school and will retire the old flag as part of their annual Veterans Day flag retirement ceremony.
