The Rotary Club of Philomath is seeking sponsors for its flag project. The organization’s members have put up flags throughout the downtown area on major holidays for more than a decade.
Funds raised by the flag program, and others, are returned to the community in various ways. Some of the projects include scholarships to Philomath High graduates, serving as a Philomath Youth Activities Club’s Promise Keeper sponsor, helping with the Clemens Field grandstand project and plantings at local parks.
Businesses or individuals who commit to a $40 annual donation can sponsor a flag.
Flags had been placed at sponsor locations in past years, but the Rotary is introducing a new plan. A high concentration of flags will be placed on Main Street between 12th and 19th streets to provide a greater visual impact to the display
Sponsors will receive special recognition at Rotary activities, in publications and at meetings, including the Salmon and Jazz event.
For information or to sponsor a flag, contact Josh Kvidt at Citizens Bank or call 541-929-3228.
