Proud Canadians donate flagpole for mountain in Nelson

Yones Couch and her sister Fermina Bath proudly donated the 25 foot flagpole that now stands atop Elephant Mountain.

Yones Couch and her sister Fermina Bath proudly donated the 25 foot flagpole that now stands atop Elephant Mountain. As young girls, the sisters would walk from Rosemont and find their way up Elephant Mountain without a trail. They would like to thank the volunteers who erected the flagpole on a soggy day in May and Bruce Morrison (above), financial planner with Investors Group, for getting the ball rolling. Yones is happy to say: “I check my flag every morning.”
