Fittingly, the plaque presented to the Champaign Park District this week will be displayed in the Operations Building, home to key award officers. New director Sarah Sandquist said it was a way of saying goodbye to the staff who help maintain the eight flagpoles at the park district sites.

The park district receives the Champaign American Legion Post 24 Monthly July honor for the proper display of the United States flag. Post 24 selected Old Glory at Zahnd Park, a youth sports center, as the winner of the award.
