Louisville Lions Club Needs More Flag Program Sponsors

Dear Flag Sponsors,

The Louisville Lions Club would like to take the opportunity to thank the businesses and individuals listed below who sponsor our American Flag Program. The flag program is enjoyed by local citizens and those visiting our city on 10 specific holidays (weather permitting). A sponsorship is only $25 per year. The cost is less than purchasing and installing your own flag. A Lions member posts the flags on the morning of each specific holiday and picks up the flags at the end of the day.

The funds collected from these sponsorships are used to purchase eyeglasses, hearing aids and other services for those who are less fortunate in or around the Louisville area.

Our most impressive flag display is on Main Street. For the last several years the Louisville Lions have put out 42 flags on Main. However, beginning July 1, 2017 we will no longer be able to display all 42 flags on Main, only the flags that are sponsored.

Out of the 42 flags, only 18 are sponsored by Main Street businesses and 5 are sponsored by individuals. With the help of the Chamber/Partnership and State Farm, who sponsor a flag at their place of business and have donated extra funds to help with Main Street sponsorships this year, our total flags on Main is now at 25, leaving 17 flags still unsponsored. All sponsored flags holders on Main Street have a white label attached indicating the business or individual sponsoring. When you visit these businesses or see these individuals please thank them for their support of our community and their patriotism. If you know of a business on Main Street that does not sponsor a flag, please encourage them to do so.

If you are a Louisville business or individual that would be interested in sponsoring a flag on Main Street or at your own business, please contact Tracy McCully, Louisville Lions Club Secretary at 662-705-1084, Benny Edwards, Flag Chairman at 662-736-1255 or any Lions Club member.

Thank you all again for your support!
The Louisville Lions Club
