Adopt-a-Pole Program

Adopt-a-Pole & Display a Flag

Would you like to have a flag displayed and flying in honor of a Veteran or loved one? Whether in memory or in honor of someone special, you can have a flag on display in their memory or in their honor from the 1st of May to the end of July, each year, for the next 3 years (every 3 years the flag would have to be replaced). There are approximately 200 poles along the Flag Day parade route. The Celebrations Committee would like to have a flag on each of the poles for Memorial Day, Flag Day, and July 4th. Would you like to participate in honoring someone special and your country?

Adopt-a-Pole program will guarantee your wish will come true!

Under the Adopt-a-Pole program, the Celebrations Committee will have an American Flag installed on each pole with a name tag attached to the bracket. The cost to provide and install the flag, flag staff, staff bracket, and name plate is $75.

Send a diagram if necessary.
