A ceremony will be
held today to celebrate the return of the American flag atop the Real Office
Center building (Google's old office) at 604 Arizona Avenue in Santa Monica.
Local resident and founder/CEO
of Homeland Advisory Group, Josh Bashioum organized today’s flag-raising event
at 4:30 pm.
He said he noticed
the flag had been missing since Google moved out.
As a volunteer CERT
instructor with Burbank Fire Department, he knew just who to call, their
friends at Santa Monica Fire Department, who will take part in the ceremony.
Bashioum said he
purchased the flag, rigging, and hardware for the event.
among many other start-ups here, are working hard raising money and creating
jobs, a true American dream,” Bashioum said. “Since we’re planning to open
office space at the epicenter, Real Office Centers, I decided to see what I
could do to replace the very symbol of the entrepreneurial spirit.”
Group is a technology startup that offers online emergency planning and
training platform for organizations.
