Donations Needed for City of Ventura American Flag Program

cost arial, viagra order sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;”>The City of Ventura is asking the community and local businesses to support the longstanding tradition of displaying American flags across the city by helping to fund the purchase of new flags. Contributions of any size will help the city continue to fly the stars and stripes on city streets, the historic Ventura Pier and the Veterans Memorial located at the Ventura County Government Center.

Members of the public can support the program and help replace existing flags that have become damaged or deteriorated from the sunlight. To donate, the public can purchase flags at a discounted price from American Flags & Cutlery, 305 E. Main Street. Or donors can make a contribution by sending a check payable to “Veterans of Foreign Wars” to PO Box 1297 Ventura, CA 93002. All donations are tax deductible and donors will receive a letter acknowledging the contribution.

The City of Ventura has worked with Veterans of Foreign Wars and American Flags & Cutlery for many years to collect donations that support the display of American flags along California Street, Main Street, Thompson Boulevard, Ventura Avenue, the Promenade and the Ventura Pier from Memorial Day through Independence Day. This program also supports flags for each branch of the US Armed Forces that fly at the Ventura County Government Center Veterans Memorial.

For more information, contact City of Ventura Councilmember Jim Monahan at (805) 643-4275.

Gary Parker, that sells flags and sharpens knives, deserves a lot of credit for supplying flags for the Ventura Pier. He’s has a local business in downtown Ventura.
