The Rotary Club of Melissa invites you to join your friends and neighbors in displaying the U.S. flag on major holidays for 2015. The Flag Lease Program is the primary fundraiser for the Rotary Club of Melissa to provide health, humanitarian, and youth service programs throughout our community and the world.
You help make this possible by supporting the ongoing Flag Lease Program in Melissa.
As a community, we can celebrate freedom and show our patriotism by displaying Old Glory on important national holidays:
- Memorial Day
- Flag Day
- Independence Day
- Labor Day
- Patriot Day
- Veteran’s Day
When you lease a flag, the Melissa Rotary members will place a capped PVC plastic sleeve in the ground, at ground level, approximately 15” from your front sidewalk or curb and mark the curb. There are NO brackets or fixtures attached to your home. On the six holidays, a 3’x5’ United States flag, mounted on a 10’ metal pole, is placed in the sleeve.
The flags will be placed for one to five days depending on schedules and weather. We do all the work for you!
We display and store the flags. The flags and sleeves remain the property of the Melissa Rotary Club. Make all checks payable to Melissa Rotary. MC and Visa are accepted.
Consistent with Arlington Cemetery rules, temporary flags may be displayed without lighting at night.
Drive through your neighborhood with pride as the red, white and blue stands proudly.
