Lewisville, TX. May 2, 2020 — The Rotary Club of Lewisville encourages home owners in Lewisville, Flower Mound, Double Oak, Copper Canyon, Lantana, Highland Village, Castle Hills and The Colony to subscribe during its Annual Flag Subscription Drive from May 2nd through June 30th to celebrate our patriotism during the holidays with a flag in the front yard of residential homes. Lewisville Area Flags.

 

The Lewisville Area Flags Spring Subscription Drive offers residents flags installed in their front yards during patriotic holidays for an annual lease fee which includes a high quality 3' x 5' United States Flag fastened to a 10' long pole that is set into a sleeve we have installed in your front yard.  The subscription fee includes installation of the sleeve set in a location you choose. The sleeves will be installed by Rotarians 2 to 3 weeks prior to the next flag launch date. For each of the subsequent holidays, our volunteer boy scouts will install the flags prior to the holiday and remove the flags after the holiday. The actual date of installation and removal of flag and pole will depend on weather and other scheduling factors. For most holidays, the installation will be during the weekend before the holiday and the removal will be during the weekend following the holiday. We offer two subscription options; Tier I Option includes 6 holidays for $48 and Tier II Option includes 10 holidays for $80. See Lewisville Area Flags for the list of holidays in each option.

 

The Lewisville Area Flag Program is the Lewisville Morning Rotary Clubs primary fund raiser in support of local boy scout troops and our local community projects such as the Dictionary Project, Perfect Engagement at Central Elementary School, Christian Community Action Food Pantry, Salvation Army, Youth Scholarships, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, International Projects such as the Dental Clinic in Costa Rica and The Rotary Foundation.

 

According to member and Flower Mound resident Mary Jones “I love being a Rotarian. 

Who wouldn't?? I can participate in programs that I didn't hold a degree in, I can work side by side with really interesting and cool people, I can  meet people I probably wouldn't have the ability to meet and suddenly I’ve realized I have an immediate pipeline of new friends and became part of a "family"

 

As we weather the effects for the current Covid 19 Pandemic it is important to point out that Rotary’s top priority is the global eradication of polio, another virus that freighted our population for most of the mid 20th century. Rotary launched its polio immunization program, PolioPlus, in 1985 and in 1988 became a leading partner in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative along with the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and more recently, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Officially, polio has been eradicated in the United States since 1979. Through the efforts of Rotary, WHO, UNICEF,CDC and the Bill Gates Foundation, polio has been eradicated in all countries except Afghanistan and Pakistan. Our goal is Total Eradication in all countries.
