The Boy Scouts Troop 89 partnered with us on our American Spirit program and delivered flags to 12 subscribers. The Pettycoart and MacChesney are the two families that helped this year.
The troop received a donation of $324 that will be applied to the Troops account for projects. One of the Scouts mothers was at the meeting and she stated that her husband and son loved to place the flags, the only issue they had was that they live in Wisconsin, so it was a 30-minute drive to place the flags, this shows dedication to the scouts and to our program.
We are looking to expand their reach next year and will be helping them sell more subscriptions in Spring 2019.
The American Spirit Program is a service our Rotary Club has developed to provide an opportunity for Americans to show pride in their country. Proceeds from “The American Spirit” are donated to organizations in our communities.
For a donation of $48/6 days, the Rotary Club North St Paul Maplewood Oakdale volunteers or partners will place a 3’ by 5’ American flag on a 10ft pole in front of your home or business on six holidays.
Volunteers deliver flags by 8 am and remove them the evening of the flag day. You do not have to be present. The Rotary Club is responsible for replacement of any flag soiled, damaged or stolen as well as storing the flags throughout the year.
