Can somone explain why the flag (at the dock) wasn't flying on Memorial Day? Rather dissapointing. Actually, a little upsetting.

From what I understand there is a worn cable issue. Soon to be repaired

There was an extremely moving, heartfelt Memorial Day service at Veteran's Park, adjacent to the Old Dock in the Pines, and at the cemetery. At noon, two Island veterans raised the Pines flag from half staff to full, and then all of the veterans and others walked up to the cemetery to pay tribute there. Despite the lack of a 'big' flag at the new dock, I felt that the BBI Memorial Day service was just right.
