Avenue of Flags

Your Invitation to Participate in Patriotism

The Sherida Burgmeier Moore Jennings County Community Foundation Fund is offering the AVENUE OF FLAGS program to our community. The AVENUE OF FLAGS program allows each subscriber to celebrate six national holidays with an American flag flying in his or her yard. The cost of a one year subscription is $30. The supporters of the fund will place a 3 foot by 5 foot American flag on a ten foot pole in front of your home on these six national holidays: Memorial Day, Flag Day, July 4th, Labor Day, September 11, and Veterans Day. Multiple years can be purchased at $30 per year. If you prefer, your flag can be flown on the lawn of the Jennings County Courthouse in Vernon, at Stellar Park, or at City Hall.

Volunteers will deliver the flags at dawn and retrieve them at dusk. You do not need to be present. A below ground receptacle will be installed approximately two to five feet from the street in front of your home. The Sherida Burgmeier Moore volunteers are responsible for replacement of any flag soiled, damaged, or stolen.

All proceeds of the AVENUE OF FLAGS are used for Jennings County community needs, projects, and programs through the Sherida Moore Fund. You may want to consider subscribing in honor of a soldier or in memory of a veteran or loved one.

Please join your neighbors in this colorful and patriotic program. Just complete the subscription form below and mail it along with your check for $30 a year, payable to Jennings County Community Foundation, 111 North State Street, North Vernon, IN 47265.
