Redlands Lions Club honors patriotic holidays with flag service

The Redlands Lions Club is a community organization that provides various services to the residents of the Redlands area and beyond. One of their most visible and popular services is the flag service, which displays the American flag in front of homes and businesses on nine patriotic holidays throughout the year.

How the flag service works

The flag service is a subscription-based program that costs $35 per year. Customers who sign up for the service receive a metal sleeve that is installed in their yard or sidewalk by the Lions Club members. On each of the nine holidays, the Lions Club volunteers place a 3-by-5-foot flag on a 10-foot pole in the sleeve, and then remove it at the end of the day.

The nine holidays that the flag service covers are:

  • New Year’s Day
  • Martin Luther King Jr. Day
  • Presidents Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Flag Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Veterans Day
  • Pearl Harbor Day

Why the flag service is important

The flag service is not only a way to show patriotism and support for the country, but also a way to raise funds for the Lions Club’s charitable activities. The Lions Club uses the money from the flag service to support various causes, such as:

Many customers have expressed their appreciation and gratitude for the flag service, and some have even requested additional flags for special occasions, such as birthdays, anniversaries, or graduations.
