Veteran's Day Weekend is coming up in November so there is time to get your US Flag(s) ordered from the Rotary Clubs of Texarkana, but don't wait, because you know you'll forget. Happens to me all the time.

You see them all over Texarkana, US Flags lining the streets, have you ever wondered where they come from, who puts them out and picks them back up? Does it cost anything? Well, here are your answers.

Texarkana area Rotary Clubs are responsible for that beautiful patriotic display we see around town on appropriate holidays. They started this fundraiser back in 2000 with 400 flags, Rotary Clubs of Texarkana now place over 4,300 flags six times a year. Yes, it does cost a little money to have them put out a flag or two or three in front of your house or business, but not that much, and it's so convenient. It not only raises money for Rotarian projects every year but they also share that money with many groups around the city, Scout Troops, church youth groups, and many other groups help put them out so they get a cut of the proceeds as well.

Here's the breakdown:

  • 1-2 flags = $45 each
  • 3-4 flags = $38 each
  • 5-9 flags = $36 each
  • 10-19 flags = $33 each
  • 20 or more flags = $29 each

That will get you an American Flag(s) displayed at your business or house for six flag-appropriate holidays each year including:

  • 4th of July
  • Patriot Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Veterans Day
  • MLK Day
  • Presidents Day
