Flag Program Service at "The Shed"
The Memorial Day holiday marks the beginning of our 2024 flag lease holidays and your help is needed. How can you get involved?
  • During "Flag Pickup" we need to load flags into the vehicles of our flag partners who will place the flags in subscriber's yards. We need help counting, checking lists and loading flags - about six Rotarians are needed for each shift. Flags 3'x5' and are on 10' poles.
  • During "Flag Return" we need to count flags, check lists, and return them to our storage units - about six Rotarians are needed for each shift.
  • "The Shed" is CubeSmart Self Storage, 1700 S. Central Expy., McKinney. The gate should be open during shift times, but if not just use the gate code (will be shared separately) or ask the office will let you in.
Dates and times for all 2024 holidays are listed in our bulletin - please select one or two to help with this fundraising effort and get to know your fellow Rotarians better. 
Photos Needed
