|The tattered flags and broken flagpoles that we currently have.|
The Main Street Initiative feels strongly that American flags should be American-made, as durable as possible, and shown in their best possible light. Plantings of red, white and blue "Super-tunias" in barrels and hanging baskets lining the streets will create a unified and pleasing setting for brand new American-made flags. Trustworthy Hardware on Union Avenue has offered to sell the Main Street Initiative both the flags and flagpoles, and we're working with Petal Pushers to provide the plants.
We have created an on-line campaign that will allow anyone who is interested in this project to make a donation to it, whether from within the area or not. This is about pride in the flag, and reverence toward its display. We are one small city, but don't think that should be an excuse for anything less than our best in putting forward the American flag. Donations will be accepted as well at All My Life Jewelers on Main Street and The Studio on Canal Street. Questions can be directed by email to email@example.com or by phone or text to 603-455-2084. The Laconia Main Street Initiative is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and all contributions are tax-deductible.
