New Hartford cemetery gets new flag pole

NEW HARTFORD (KWWL) -- After suffering serious damage in the May EF-5 tornado, the New Hartford cemetary has a new flag pole.

The previous flag pole was bent in half after the tornado. Mike Shimp made a new one but needed help installing it.

A group of volunteers gathered at the cemetary last Saturday to raise the pole. It took five people to hang the flag.
