Chester Kordahl, left, and Herb St. Mary of American Legion Post 114 raise the American flag outside of the Sikeston Public Library for the first time while the Library's board members look on Tuesday afternoon. The flag was raised in honor of the late Anne Hollenbeck, a former library board member who had wished to see a flag flying outside the library. Board members decided to acknowledge her generosity and contributions to the library by fulfilling this wish. A plaque bearing her name and "A True Friend of the Library" will be mounted near the pole.
