Veterans Day Flag Deployment
last deployment of the
2019 subscription year
 
As Veterans Day activities drew to a close, one of our members received a call at work to retrieve one of our flags. So, how does one transport a flag mounted on a 9' staff? Well, through the sunroof of course. Rotarians and our flag partners do have fun.
Deploying and retrieving almost 1000 flags during our 5 patriotic holidays requires a lot of work and coordination by our members and community partners.
 
It was a pleasure Friday morning (Nov. 15)  to support the Old High Soccer Booster Club for their support of our flag program that displays roughly a 1000 flags at houses in our community. They received a check above $1,500.00 for their support. Thank you Old High Soccer.
 
About the Flag Subscription Program.
 
The American Flag display gives our city a festive, patriotic look and the money realized from this program is donated to a number of worthwhile projects in our community and world.  
 
Neighbors that wished to participate in the Rotary Club of Wichita Falls North’s American Flag Display Program did so for a yearly cost of $25.00 per flag, (this cost is for 1 flag all 5 holidays).
 
Rotary and our partners placed the American Flag at the residences shown below. Regular Flag Display Holidays this past year:
Memorial Day-Monday, May 27, 2019
Flag Day-Friday, June 14, 2019
Independence Day-Thursday, July 4, 2019

NOTE: To respect our flag, and for the safety of everyone involved, we will not display during inclement weather. 
 
We are already looking forward to next years flag program. To learn more, please contact Jeani Secord 447-5436 (preferred) or 767-7478
