Flag Day Is This Friday – Here’s How To Help Others and Get A Flag In Your Yard
Happy Flag Day 2019! You know this Friday is Flag Day right?
You see them all the time, US Flags lining the streets of Texarkana, Texas and Arkansas, have you ever wondered where they come from, who puts them out and picks them back up? Does it cost anything? Well, here are those answers and more.
Texarkana area Rotary Clubs are responsible for the plethora of flags we see around town on patriotic holidays. Yes, it does cost a little money to have them put a flag or two or three in front of your home or business, but not that much and it's so convenient. Even though sometimes we get busy and forget to put our flag out, Rotary Clubs do not. It not only raises money for Rotarian projects every year but they also share that money with many groups around the city that help them including Scout Troops, church youth groups, and many others that help put the flags out and pick them back up. So, those groups get a cut of the proceeds as well.
Here's the breakdown:
- 1-2 flags = $45 each
- 3-4 flags = $38 each
- 5-9 flags = $36 each
- 10-19 flags = $33 each
- 20 or more flags = $29 each
That will get you an American Flag(s) displayed at your business or house for six appropriate holidays each year including:
- 4th of July
- Flag Day
- Memorial Day
- Veterans Day
- MLK Day
- Presidents Day
