STARS AND STRIPES FOREVER!
Early last month the staff at Consulate General Strasbourg took a few minutes to inaugurate our new flagpole. The old pole had been overtaken by the lovely tree that grows in the garden in front of the Consulate building, and as a result, our flag was frequently tangled in the branches and was difficult to see from the street. Administrative Assistant Valerie Massacrier made the necessary arrangements to remedy the situation. She ordered a new, taller pole, and supervised its installation to the left of our front door. As a result, the Stars and Stripes now fly higher and prouder than ever! Next time you’re passing by the Consulate, take a brief glance and let us know what you think!
