Beginning the week of August 25th, you will once again see the Melissa Rotary U.S. flags being installed for Labor Day in our community.
The Melissa Rotary Club partners with many organizations to install the flags for each holiday to get the job done, but more importantly, as a way to spread your flag donations throughout the community.  Organizations who work with Rotary to install these flags use this as a fundraiser for their projects and services.  
Would you like to join us as a fundraiser for your group?  Please send an email indicating your group and interest to and let's talk!  
Melissa homeowners and businesses can lease flags on a January-December calendar schedule. Flags begin to be installed 3 days before the holiday.  You must have joined the program at least one month prior to receive a flag for the current holiday, due to the logistics involved.
