CHIPLEY - As one of the first communities to send supplies, monetary donations, and willing, working hands to help in relief efforts for Texas in the aftermath of hurricane Harvey, Washington County has already shown compassion for the Houston area. Expression of support continue this week, with Washington County's Dawn Veit, also known as "The Flag Lady," placing 30 Texas state flags alongside the American flags displayed throughout downtown Chipley for Labor Day.
The Texas flags were sponsored by local residents, who will be presented with the flags after they are taken down this week.
"This is just a small way to show our support," said Veit. "Stay strong, Texas. Chipley stands with you."
