It was a flag that fluttered in Dover on Saturday as the Grand Dover Chamber of Commerce’s city lights committee refreshed the flags as the summer season approaches.

The volunteer committee hung 70 American flags along Central Avenue with the help of Dover Mayor Robert Carrier and several members of Dover Elks Lodge # 184.

Many flags had been cleaned by Cleary Cleaners, but some have been replaced.

“We are taking them down after Veterans Day. Some of them were new because the flags are weathered for almost six months,” House Speaker Margaret Joyce told Seacoast Current.

Funding for the flags comes from the annual Chamber Tree Festival event, which features 30 decorated trees from local businesses and organizations that will be auctioned and raffled off.

The chamber has named Matt Maybury Citizen of the Year and physical education teacher at Dover High School as its Educator of the Year and will be honored at its awards gala on Friday, June 4.

The legacy award will be unveiled at the gala to an individual who the House says has had a huge impact on the city of Dover and, more recently, across the state.
