17th taking into observance Patriots and Citizenship days.
          Many positive comments were received for this display
          by those driving through downtown. They have been dis-
          played during Veterans Day (Nov. 11th), Presidents Day
          (February),  Armed  Forces  and  Memorial  Days  (May),
          July 4th (July) and will begin a second display cycle later
          this month for both Patriots and Citizenship Days.

          Our 30 distinctive flags reach across a broad range of his-
          torical and military symbols in addition to other flags mak-
          ing patriotic statements. We have 10 current U. S. flags, all
          military service flags, the Christian flag, our state flag, and
          several  historic flags from our nation’s past growth and
          glory,  flags representing public service units such as fire,
          E.M.S., and police, and also motto banners of support to
          our military. When placed in the ground and moved by the
          breeze they are quite dramatic and eye catching.

          Special thanks go out to the original flag selection com-
          mittee,  those  who  offered  donations  including  Robeson
          County Commissioner Tom Taylor, Timmy Bass, and to
          the cadets of the FHS JROTC who have helped with the
          set up and removal of the flags several times. Without all
          these the idea for the flags could have “never flown”.
