In honor of President’s Day, many businesses around Franklin had an American Flag displayed. The flags were provided by the Lions Club of Franklin.
Businesses are able to support the Lions and the United States by paying $25 each year in order to have a flag provided and displayed in front of their store or shop.
The willingness of the community to come together and support local clubs that may share the same patriotism as they do could be one of the reasons that the project has been a success for the last 30 years.
The flags are also on display during other holidays such as Independence Day, Labor Day, Veteran’s Day, Thanksgiving, Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day and Flag Day.
Haithcock hopes to attract more businesses to the project.
