CAN – Collective Action Now: September 8 Flag Placement, A Memorial to Lives Lost on 9/11

CAN – Collective Action NOW

Our Conduct Becomes Us – Always Respectful Of Others

Something you CAN do….Friday September 8, 2017 

WHEN: Friday, September 8

TIME: 5:00 PM

WHERE: Camarillo, Corner of Las Posas and Fieldgate (near the Camarillo Library entrance)

WHY:  Help is needed to place 2,977  American flags on the Camarillo Library’s lawn as a memorial to the lives lost on September 11, 2001

Wyatt Germaine, the son of POV associate member Jane Germaine, has applied to establish a Young America’s Foundation (YAF) Chapter at Camarillo’s Rancho Campana High School. For his first project, Wyatt wanted to place 2,977 small American flags on the school campus as a memorial to the lives lost on September 11, 2001 (9/11). His request to start the new YAF chapter at the high school will not be heard until mid-September, too late for 9/11. Wyatt was not to be deterred… Jane contacted the City of Camarillo requesting approval to place the flags on the lawn in front of the Camarillo Library. Richard Petropulos, Director of Administrative Services for the City of Camarillo gave the OK to place the flags at the corner of Las Posas and Fieldgate. As the City considers this an “event” requiring insurance, the Young America’s Foundation has offered to cover the cost of the insurance.  

YAF has also provided two banners that will be displayed (both have been approved by the City).

The flags will be removed September 12th.

Please reply to this message if we can count on you to participate so we can get an idea of how many volunteers we will have.

Whether you can help or not, we can extend thanks to Wyatt Germaine, a proud young American who has chosen a meaningful project displaying Camarillo’s patriotic spirit.
