NEW CHANGES in the USA Flag Program for 2020

Thank you for your past, present & future participation and support of the Belton Lions Club US Flag Program.  It is encouraging to see the participation of so many in our community, as we proudly fly the flag of the United States of America.

As we are living in uncertain times of shelter-in-place and social distancing, our Belton Lions Club members have decided to expand on the Flag Program with an idea to flood the Belton streets with American flags as a continuing collective statement of courage, unity and hope.

Here’s the plan:

Step 1: Belton Lions Club Members will place your Flag in your yard, prior to the first normal scheduled day, Memorial Day.

Step 2: The Belton Lions Club asks you to fly the Flag daily during these challenging times.  The flag will be entrusted to your care for the remainder of the year.  Since the flag should be illuminated if displayed at night, we ask you to take the Flag in each night at dusk, and replace it in the yard each morning at sunrise.

The Belton Lions Club will remind you by email the day before a recognized holiday to ensure the flags are displayed – on Memorial Day-May 25th, Flag Day-June 14th, Independence Day-July 4th, Patriot Day-September 11th, and Veterans Day-November 7th.

Step 3: We anticipate all flags will be picked up by the Belton Lions at dusk on November 7th, to secure flags for the Winter.

For current participants in the new 2020 Flag Program, we have reduced the annual program cost from $30 to $25.  We would appreciate payment by July 1, but we understand if you need longer.  Just let us know.

It is you who accomplish the extraordinary in our community. Together, we will fortify hope. Together, we will show our American pride of strength by displaying our flag.  Together, we will get through this.
