The Blackburn-Dennis Community Center in Fowler has a new flag, thanks to Dave and Tamra Loehr.

The Loehrs live across the street from the center. He was from Fowler and his family moved away. He was a Marine who retired after 26 years of service. He and his wife of 39 years moved back to Fowler from Fountain about a year ago.

Loretta Vickers wrote, “They said they would sit on their porch and look at our old lightly tattered flag and talk about how a larger new one would be nice.”

So they did something about it.

The new flag is 12-by-18 feet.

Vickers said, “The Blackburn-Dennis Board would like to thank the Loehrs for a great gift.”
