New flagpole goes in at Inman Liberty Park

Go out Ohio 550, 4.8 miles from Marietta and behind Tunnel United Methodist Church — there lies Inman Liberty Park, named after a Revolutionary soldier buried nearby. The park has shelters with tables, a pond and walking track. Inman Liberty Park is supervised by the Warren Township trustees.

The Scenic Hills Lions Club of the Warren school area noted when they met at the park, they had to bring their own flag for the Pledge of Allegiance. Finally, an idea emerged, and it became reality on Dec. 8, 2017. On that day, through an effort by many hands, a 20-foot lighted flagpole was installed.

The Scenic Hills Lions purchased all of the flag equipment, with the American flag donated by Annin Flagmakers of Coshocton; the Warren Township trustees provided the concrete base; and Bob Lane Welding of Marietta provided a bracket for the plaque on the pole. American Flags and Poles of Marietta installed the flagpole with help from a trustee and the Lions Club.

Now Inman Liberty Park has a new beacon for gatherings which take place there.
