Clarkston Optimist Club - Flags-For-Kids Project 2021

The Clarkston Optimist Club shares their optimism and patriotic spirit in the Clarkston/Independence Township community with their Flags-for-Kids Project. Club members and other volunteers will place American Flags on a 10 foot high flagpole in front of homes and businesses on six National holidays. Subscribers pay $45 per year, for a flag to be placed in their yard, for the following six holidays:

  • Memorial Day (varies with the calendar)
  • Flag Day (6/14)
  • Fourth of July (7/04)
  • Labor Day (date varies with the calendar)
  • September 11th (9/11)
  • Veteran's Day (11/11)

Flags will be placed one or two days ahead of the holiday and removed within two days, after the holiday. Flags will remain up between Labor Day and 9/11.
