Help the Elyria Kiwanis Club create a community of red, white and blue! Join others on your street to honor our country with a parade of flags in all of our neighborhoods.
Your Elyria Kiwanis Club, assisted by local boy scouts and youth groups, will place a 3' x 5' flag in your front yard for five (5) holidays per year. The flags will then be promptly collected and stored. A temporary support will be installed in your front yard to hold the flagstaff. The City of Elyria has approved the flag to be placed on "tree lawns" where available. The flag and staff will remain the property of the Elyria Kiwanis Club.
All profits will support community efforts like the Elyria High School Building Project's Courtyard and Performing Arts Buildings as well as other local programs like Dial-A-Story and Safety Town. For $30.00 per calendar year, the Elyria Kiwanis club will provide and install the flag, properly store it, and arrange to have the flag picked up for the five holidays listed below:
Memorial Day, Flag Day (June 14), Independence Day (July 4), Patriot Day (September 11) and Veteran's Day (November 11).
