Flag Project Shows Great Bend's Patriotism
The Kiwanis Club of Great Bend is developing a new fundraiser that they plan to roll out this year. The Kiwanis U.S. Flag Project will displays American Flags down the Broadway corridor and Veteran's Park on McKinley.
Will Rains with Great Bend Kiwanis says the group would place flags at sunrise and retire them at sunset the same day.
"There is a PVC pipe that would be put down in the yard, closer to the sidewalk," said Rains. "A hole will be drilled, and the PVC pipe will stay there year round but will be deep enough to mow over."
Kiwanis Club will look into youth groups for assistance, since the club’s mission is to improve communities for children.
Agreement forms and checks can be submitted to Kiwanis Club of Great Bend, P.O. Box 414, Great Bend, KS 67530.
