Dear Neighbor,

It’s again time to participate in the placement of U.S. flags in your neighborhood on 6 holidays from May to October. Our youth group, consisting of 30 young men and women, ages 12 to 18, will put up, take down, and store a 3’x5′ nylon American flag on your front lawn. With the COVID-19 pandemic restricting activities this past year, the youth decided to support these local charities:

Lewis Central Thriving Titans — baskets
Children’s Square — emergency shelter for youth
Salvation Army — Christmas meal ticket
Heartland Family Services
Women’s Shelter
Church seniors — fruit baskets
New Visions — gift kits for homeless families

The flag installation includes the placement of a metal footing into your lawn. This footing is not visible above the grass and will not interfere with mowing. Also, a painted mark will be placed on the curb at the footing location.

If you would like this $35.00 service for the 6 holidays, please fill out the information below. We appreciate the support of your neighborhood and will work hard to provide the best service for your home. 100% of your contribution goes to the youth activities for all of 2021.

Again, thank you for showing your patriotism and support of our youth with their flag
