2019 – Avenue of Flags Program

Veteran’s Day is right around the corner. If you are a participant in this program, be on the lookout for our members who will be installing our beautiful flags across the city of Van Wert.

Just by participating, you are able to showcase your patriotism and thank those that have served or who are currently serving. Did you know you also benefit area youth? The money earned by this program is directly reinvested into other programs we offer that benefit the youth in the area.

Program details:

For $50/year, our club will deliver and place your flag before each holiday and retrieve after the holiday. The Optimist Club of Van Wert is responsible for the placement of the flag and proper storage after the flags have been recovered. If you wish to display more than one flag, you receive $10.00 discount per flag.

Participants in this program receive a 3’ by 5’ high-quality, American flag on a 10’ flagpole within 15’ of the curb in front of your home or business for the following days surrounding five national holidays: Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Labor Day and Veterans Day. Club members will install the flags a few days before the holiday and remove them a few days after each holiday.
