Sunshine Club wants to get Fritch in patriotic spirit

The Sunshine Club Senior Citizens Group of Fritch has a spirit of patriotism, and it wants to see business owners and residents there showing theirs as well.“We want to put out the American flag at your business for a fee of $30 per year for one flag or $50 per year for two flags on the same property,” Kee Ruland, member of the Sunshine Club, said. “The flags will be 3 ft. by 5 ft. and will be on a 10 ft. pole.”The group will also place flags at any residence in the city limits for the same price. The flags will be put out at 8 a.m. and taken up between 5 and 6 p.m. If the weather is too bad for the flags to fly, that holiday will be skipped.The Sunshine Club plans to put the flags out for President’s Day in February, Memorial Day in May, Flag Day in June, Independence Day or 4th of July, Labor Day in September, Patriot’s Day or September 11, Columbus Day in October and Veteran’s Day in November. The group will also put the flags out on other special days at no extra charge.“We want to let the people who drive through our city know that the business owners and residents of Fritch care about the American Flag and about our country and have a desire to show their patriotism to those residing here and to visitors to our city,” Hazel Winkel said.To get signed up or for any questions on the flag program, contact any Sunshine Club member or call Hazel Winkel at 857-3660 or Kee Ruland at 857-3596.
