“Flags on the Green” is a project sponsored by the Woman’s Club of Plainville, Inc. They are selling flags to salute military personnel, past and present.
Each flag will have the name of the honoree attached and they will be placed at the Municipal Green, in front of Plainville Town Hall, for the Memorial Day Parade. The flags (12” x 18” on 30” stick) are selling for $10 per flag. If you do not know any military personnel, please consider purchasing a flag to represent:
A Non Military special family member or friend
A specific branch of the military
A specific war
All military personnel currently serving
Remember to ask your friends and relatives. We would like to see the Municipal Green lit up with flags for Memorial Day.
