Friday Flags in Waterbury Zip 06706 East Mountain

As one drives up Rt 69 out of Waterbury, they are met with a grassy expanse which is the earthen dam of the East Mountain water containment reservoir. No longer used for drinking water, it is just place where anglers will try to catch the fish that have they water as their home.

The water itself is not safe for swimming and on occasion it claims a victim.

The striking feature that captures attention is the name of the neighborhoods and a carefully placed flag in detail.

The neighborhood itself is all residential homes and covers a lot of area of almost 300 homes. There is a friendly association that holds monthly meetings mostly for the benefit of the youth teams they sponsor.  It is the East Mountain Neighborhood Association.

Solar lights keep it illuminated at night and it is there year-round.

As it is such a friendly neighborhood with a newly remodeled elementary school at its base, when its listings come on market, they are quickly under deposit.

It sadly seems I see fewer and fewer flags being displayed. We need to start teaching civics again in our classrooms.

Good afternoon Ed Silva ..How wonderful you have a year-round display...the evening must really take on a new meaning with the lights. I'm with Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty "We need to start teaching civics again in our classrooms. " Then reinforce the displaying of our precious American Flag. Maybe if more understood the meaning of our flag, they would want to display it proudly!

Hi Ed- I love the presentation of this flag!  And I agree with Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty and Dorie Dillard Austin TX we need to teach more of the basics in our schools rather than  proper pronouns.
