The Minerva Rotary Club flag is offering to post American flags in front of homes and businesses on six national holidays: Memorial Day, Flag Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Patriots Day-911 and Veterans Day.
For a $25 yearly lease, a homeowner or business can arrange for the placement of a 3-foot by 5-foot flag on a 10-foot staff in a plastic anchor pipe buried in the ground. The anchor will be flush with the ground, and a plastic cap will be placed on it when not in use. Homes and businesses must be in the Minerva zip code to lease flags.
Rotary International is a worldwide service organization with members committing to "service above self" in support of local and international service projects. Proceeds from the Minerva flag project supports Rotary youth leadership training, community improvements, local arts, Christmas for special-needs children, local scholarships and literacy promotion. Internationally, Rotary clubs work together for the worldwide eradication of polio.
To receive an application for the flag program, contact the Minerva YMCA at 330-868-5988 or any Minerva Rotarian. Application cards are also available at the Minerva YMCA, the Minerva Library and from Rotarian Theresa Linder at Consumers National Bank - Minerva Branch.
