"What is also very appropriate is that this flagpole is hand-made from wood," he said. "Doug worked magic with his hands. He created his house from the earth with his hands and heart. Doug could see a beautiful piece of furniture in a tree, and then create it."
The ceremony will begin Sept. 11 at 5:30 p.m. in front of the AVCS administration building. Visitors are encouraged to park at AuSable Valley High School, where buses will provide shuttle transportation, departing from the school at 5:15 p.m. The buses will return visitors to the High School in time for the football game that evening.
