Good day Friends of Flag City USA,
For the past 29 years the Redmond Downtown Flag Committee meets in springtime and outlines those steps necessary to place over 1,700 full size American flags on our streets. I was elected in 2019 with a mandate to review the program and generate discussions for growth and potential improvements.
Our first FCUSA meeting of the year will take place on January 27th at 5:30 PM. With new COVID and social distancing protocols, this year the invitation is a Zoom event. With the necessity to distance comes the ability to expand our audience. This year’s notice is sent to our regular and steadfast team, and to a number of new faces who have mentioned their interest in the past. For the new faces; I hope that by meetings end you’ll find an appreciation for your fellow citizens and their supportive efforts for Flag City USA.
Reviewing the FCUSA’s history, it’s efforts and challenges is where we begin, and then on to 2021.
There’s a great deal to prepare for in the 2021 flag display season and the tasks ahead require sensibility, talent, and of course effort. I would invite you and those who want to contribute their knowledge and skills to attend.
On the calendar:
This will be a year to remember. America is divided politically in all areas except for the Flag of our Nation. Let’s participate and be a part of an All American action program. Honoring our Nations Flag and promoting American ideals could not be more important at this moment in history.
I look forward to your attendance and involvement.
PS. Remember the need for a skillful and trusted individual for the “Flag Order Master” and “Central Coordinator” …and a few more key positions.
Become involved; promote and support the Flag of Our Nation and our own Flag City USA.
