A Michigan cheesemaker that turns heads with its larger-than-life statue of a milk cow at its shop entrance is making a big patriotic gesture.
A storm toppled Williams Cheese Company's sign and U.S. flag in 2012, so owner Mike H. Williams resolved to replace the 6-by-10-foot flag at the store. The Bay City Times reports crews this week raised one that's 10 times that size.
His son Ladd Williams says the business "used to be the place with the cow." Now, he notes: "we might be the place with the flag."
The installation came ahead of Donald Trump's inauguration as the 45th president of the United States. The Williams family says the new 20-by-30-foot flag aims to be a general patriotic message rather than a specific political endorsement.
