Those wanting to show off their patriotic spirit can do so all year long thanks in part to a program started by the Farmersville Rotary Club.
The club started a residential flag program in which club members will place a U.S. Flag in front of homes for designated holidays.
Proceeds from the program enable the club to contribute of a variety of charitable programs.
Rotarians will place a 3-foot by 5-foot flag on a 10-foot pole in front of homes that are subscribed for the program that costs $50 a year, but is prorated according to when homeowners subscribe. A 2-year subscription is $90 and a 3-year subscription is $130.
Holidays to be observed are President’s Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Audie Murphy Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Patriots’ Day and Veterans Day.
To sign up, contact Farmersville Rotary Club at 972-782-7949. Subscribers must live within Farmersville city limits.
