The Mineral Wells Rotary Club would like to invite citizens to participate in their “American Flag Subscription Program” which is their biggest fundraiser of the year. It is a wonderful way to show your neighbors and community your patriotism, by flying our American flag.
There are six specified flag days per year (Presidents’ Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, 9/11 Memorial Day, & Veterans Day) where members of the Rotary come and place an American flag in front of your home or business in a designated location of your choice. The Mineral Wells community is divided into six different routes and Rotary members get up early to place your flag around 7 a.m. It remains there until around 6 p.m. that same evening.
We presently have over 375 participants in our program. It’s such a lovely site to drive down the streets around town and see all the beautiful flags in place. We would like to encourage more individuals to join and allow Rotary to put a flag out front of their homes or businesses.
The proceeds from this project go toward many local community projects.
It’s a great way to give back to your community. The cost of this program is only $42 per year and is tax deductible. Imagine what a beautiful display will be expressed prominently and uniformly throughout your neighborhood.
Your statement of patriotism and gift to our community is appreciated. For more information or to obtain an application form, please go to mineralwellsrotaryclub.org.
