New flag

Published 12:00 am Thursday, October 2, 2008

Mary Ray, from left, Blanche Millsaps, Ada Lauderdale and Bill Lauderdale hold an American flag that Ray donated in memory of her late husband, Raymond V. Ray, and Ada Lauderdale’s father. The flag will fly atop the U.S. 80 bridge. Ray, who died Oct. 4, 2007, served on the Vicksburg Bridge Commission for 25 years and was chairman from 1994 to 2001. He was instrumental in helping Millsaps launch the U.S. 80 bridge flag effort. The flags are replaced by donors every several months. (Meredith Spencer*The Vicksburg Post)
