Representatives of the three municipalities that operate Saugeen Municipal Airport gathered at the airport’s office and restaurant on Saturday, Oct. 16 to present the flags of Brockton, Hanover and West Grey.

The Saugeen Municipal Airport had asked the three municipalities to each contribute $1,000 to cover the cost of flag poles and landscaping; an anonymous donor offered to cover the cost for Brockton.

The three councils heard a presentation by airport manager Filomena McDonald earlier in the year on the plan to fly the flags and all voted in favour of the plan.
