Businesses asked to support Kiwanis flag project

Flags on holidays1W

Members of the Kiwanis Club of Davis bring us all a dose of patriotism on national holidays when they post American flags throughout downtown Davis. Kiwanis has been performing this community service since 1983 when Red Francisco, a fondly remembered founding member of the club, started the flag project.

Kiwanians want to continue performing this valued community service for many more years to come, spokeswoman Jerry Hallee said, and the club is now signing up businesses for 2014.

“It is our intent to continue focusing on the downtown core area and place as many flags as possible in that area on the following national holidays: Martin Luther King’s birthday, Presidents’ Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Patriot Day (remembering 9/11) and Veterans Day,” Hallee said.

Weather permitting, the flags will be put out around sunrise and taken down before sunset the same day. For an annual fee, Kiwanis members will provide American flags in front of businesses, usually in the grassy area near the sidewalk. The annual fee is $30 per flag.

Business owners who wish more than one flag will pay $10 for each additional flag. The funds collected pay for the flag project expenses. Any remaining funds benefit local community organizations and activities supported by the Kiwanis Club of Davis.

“Business owners soon will receive a personal letter asking for their participation in the 2014 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 to have questions or concerns addressed, contact Hallee at 530-756-4884 or grhallee@comcast.net.
