Lease a U.S. Flag for the holidays

| June 17, 2013

COSHOCTON – The Rotary Club of Coshocton has announced that they are kicking off a new project in our community, “The Coshocton Rotary Flag Project”. This project is designed as a fundraiser for the club, but promotes patriotism in our community. For $25 each year, residents of the city have the opportunity to lease a flag. The Rotary Club members will come and install a small plastic anchor pipe in the ground, close to the street edge. A 3′ by 5′ flag on a 10′ staff will then be placed in those pipes six times a year. Those holidays include: Memorial Day, Flag Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Constitution Day, and Veterans Day. The Rotary club will also then be responsible for removing and storing them. The first installation of flags this year will be for July 4.

“We are very excited to bring this project to our community,” said Phil Hunt, chairman of this project and soon-to-be club president. “It has worked well in other counties and we think it will tie in very nicely with the mayor’s new initiative that is naming Coshocton as ‘The Made in the USA City’. The flags are being made by and purchased from Annin Flags here in Coshocton. Other supplies needed are being purchased locally as well.”

To participate in this program, send your name, address, email and a check for $25 made out to Coshocton Rotary Club to P.O. Box 675 or pick up a form from a local Rotary member. Forms can also be found at Questions can be answered by e-mailing [email protected] or by calling 740-294-9708.

All proceeds from this project will go to the Coshocton Rotary Club to fund great projects that happen in the Coshocton community. Just a few projects that Rotary has supported in the past are Coshocton City and County parks, Main Street and Courtsquare flowers, City Fire Department fire rescue equipment, Himebaugh Lot Shelter, college scholarships, Coshocton Airport Amphitheater, and much more.
