Coaldale's VFW and American Legion joined forces to buy a solar-powered light for the Seek memorial. The American flag at the memorial, at Route 209 and Bull Run Street, was removed several weeks ago after borough officials received complaints that it was left up after nightfall with no illumination. The flag has flown at the memorial since the 1930s. Borough council on Sept. 15 agreed to remove the flag, except for special occasions, until a light could be installed. Council on Tuesday voted to send letters of thanks to the organizations.
