New American Flags Needed For Highway - Flag Fund Campaign
Message from John McDonough, Scoutmaster Troop 166
Poplar Bluff Boy Scout Troop 166 has, for several years, been responsible for displaying and caring for the flags that are displayed along our city streets during every holiday and patriotic occasion. Over time our flags have worn out and we are down to only 50 that are serviceable. Therefore we have started a Flag Fund campaign to raise money to purchase 200 new American flags to adorn Westwood Blvd, Business Hwy 60, 5th Street, & Hwy 53.
If we can get this funded our scouts would like to have the new flags in place before July 4th so we can show this great town how we feel about our country. At one time flags flew from just about every street light pole here in PB. They are placed there in honor of our country, our heroes, our beliefs, and our values. We would like to see that continue and with your help and support I know we can do it!
The scouts feel it is time we honor this great nation, those who have gave all, and each other; one flag at a time. Please help fund this patriotic effort.
These high quality flags are made in the USA and are $15 each. Please make all donations to:

ALSO: BSA Troop 166 does a very nice Flag Retirement Ceremony. If you have a Flag that is no longer serviceable, tattered, torn, or worn; please have them call get in touch with me (John 718-9423) so that I can make certain that it is retired in proper fashion with the entire honor it deserves.
