PILGER, Neb. (AP) - The northeast Nebraska town ravaged by a tornado has received a donation of 50 flags and 10 decorative cases to help replace what was lost in the June 16 storm.

Lt. Gov. John Nelson and officials from Woodman of the World presented the flags to Pilger officials Friday to replace ones the town used for ceremonies at its cemetery.

The city’s previous flags were stored inside city offices that were heavily damaged by the storm along with three-quarters of the twon.

Pilger Village Clerk Kim Nieman told the Norfolk Daily News (https://bit.ly/1HmhMjM ) the new flags will look beautiful at the cemetery.

Midwest Bank of Pilger also gave the town a check for $400. The bank collected individual donations to help replace the lost flags.
