Sequim Rotary looks for return of stolen U-S flags
July 7th, 2014 - 2:28pm
(Sequim) -- The Sequim Sunrise Rotary Club is looking for the return of part of their holiday flag display after 4 versions of Old Glory went missing this 4th of July weekend at Sequim-Dungeness Way and Woodcock Road.
Club members note that the discovery of missing flags was not only disappointing from a patriotic and moral standpoint, but also because of the cost associated with the flags and what those funds could be used for.
The Rotary Club's Michael Howe says the flagpoles were bent and the flags taken.
He says they are looking for the return of the flags with no questions asked.
The patriotic fund raiser provides the Club with the means to support student scholarships and other projects in the community.
Community members subscribe to the flag service on an annual basis.
Once a subscription is made, Club members will place a P-V-C sleeve in the yard at ground level.
The sleeve has a nylon cap that keeps debris out of the pipe and helps identify the sleeve for the placement crew.
Sequim Sunrise Rotary places a U-S flag at homes in designated Sequim neighborhoods five times a year, including Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, and Veterans Day.
