2013 Harmony City Wide Flag Display


Fri, May 10th, 2013
Posted in Harmony Arts & Culture

The Harmony City Wide Flag Display is back for a 3rd year. We would like to thank everyone who has helped make this a huge success!

We reached our goal last year of over 100 flags and hope to do the same or even more this year. The first year we had over 60 flags and last year we topped out at 112! We have gotten many great comments from everyone, including non-residents. We have also added a fifth holiday this year, Flag Day on June 14th.

Here is a little reminder of what it is and what we are trying to do. For a small donation of $25 the Harmony American Legion Post 81 will place a 2 foot by 3 foot flag on a 6 foot tall flag pole in your front yard for a few designated holidays throughout the summer. The flag poles are placed by driving a small stake into your yard that will leave little or no mark once it is removed. The flags are typically placed out in the morning of the given holiday or in some cases the night before, and are picked up that evening before sunset.

The flags help decorate our community, show the pride we have in our country, and our unwavering support for our troops. The money raised helps our Legion Post maintain our parade rifles and flags. It helps us provide military rights at many funerals for our fallen comrades. It helps pay for flags and grave markers that are so beautifully displayed on Memorial Day along with putting on Memorial and Veterans Day Programs for our community.

We also try to donate much of the money back to the community whenever possible. Some of the things we have contributed to so far are Empty Bowls, The Jem Theater, Selvig Park Playground Equipment, and many more.

Here is a list of the holiday’s we will be putting flags out for: Memorial Day (May 27th), Flag Day (June 14th), 4th of July, Labor Day (September 2nd), and Patriot Day (September 11th).

Please make checks payable to Harmony American Legion Post 81 and send to: Harmony American Legion Post 81, c/o Jim Bakken, 215 5th St. SW, Harmony, MN 55939.
