A new flag is hoisted up the Purdy flagpole March 27 by, left to right, Curtis Whitwright, Paula Canady, Penny Barney and Pamela Walsh. The 10-by-15 foot flag was donated by Canady. “Many years ago my father, Paul Fatland, donated and erected the flagpole in Purdy” with Whitwright’s help, she said. “It was quite the production in the day; he was appointed the mayor of Purdy, a position that never existed before or since.” Fatland owned the Chevron station in Purdy and his towing company, Paul's Towing, served the Key Peninsula for over 30 years.||| A new flag is hoisted up the Purdy flagpole March 27 by, left to right, Curtis Whitwright, Paula Canady, Penny Barney and Pamela Walsh.
