Bay's Fly-A-Flag project resumes

Bay Village’s Fly-A-Flag project is again underway. Three community groups – American Legion Post 385, Bay Kiwanis and Martha Devotion Huntington Chapter DAR – have joined together to supply FREE American flags to Bay residents with limited means or abilities who request them.

This year, the DAR especially recognizes 50 years since the Vietnam War. Flags are offered to Bay Village veterans of that war in heartfelt gratitude.

The DAR does the "office work"; American Legion and Kiwanis members install American flags, brackets and flag poles at ground-level locations chosen by the homeowner. 

The goal is to have about 50 donated flags flying around town by Memorial Day.          

Would YOU like a flag? Call Deb Marisch at 440-871-7680 or email

Deb will take your name, address and telephone number and pass them along to Jim Potter, her Kiwanis "installer." Jim will call you and schedule a convenient date and time for your American flag to be installed.

The response has been encouraging; only a few flag sets still remain. Honor all of America’s military. Call or email Deb today to schedule delivery and installation of your flag in time for Memorial Day.
