The Kiwanis Club of Davis is signing up business sponsors for 2013 for its holiday flag display. The club has been putting up American flags in downtown Davis on holidays since 1983, when Red Francisco, a founding member of the club, started the tradition.

“The club wishes to continue performing this valued community service for many more years to come,” Kiwanian Jerry Hallee said in a news release.

Flags are placed downtown on Martin Luther King’s birthday, Presidents’ Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Labor Day and Veterans Day. Weather permitting, the flags will be put out around sunrise and taken down before sunset the same day.

For a $30 annual fee, Kiwanis members will provide American flags in front of businesses, usually in the grass area by the sidewalk. Additional flags cost $10 each. The funds collected pay for the flag project expenses; any remaining funds benefit the Kiwanis’ local charities and activities.

“Business owners will soon receive a personal letter asking for their participation in the 2013 Flag Project,” Hallee said. “We sincerely hope that many businesses will choose to commemorate our national holidays by displaying the U.S. flag in front of their businesses.”

To sign up or for more information, contact Hallee at 756-4884 or grhallee@comcast.net.
