Over the last couple of days, you may have noticed flags going up all around Centerville. According to their website, “The Noon Optimist Club of Centerville is a fellowship of people who get things done.” And there is no greater visual example of their work than the display of flags put on display on Memorial Day Weekend, Flag Day June 14th, 4th of July, Labor Day Weekend and Veteran’s Day November 11th.
This patriotic community service program is called The Avenue of Flags and it’s a Fundraiser that allows them to support youth programs and youth scholarships in the community.
Because of the situation we are currently facing, and in response to Governor DeWine’s request to fly flags around Ohio, the Optimists will have a special extended display this year. These flags will remain up through the July 4th holiday, before returning for Labor and Veterans Day.
Here’s how to works:
- For an annual subscription of $50, the Optimists will place a 3′ by 5′ high quality American flag on a 10′ flag pole typically within 15″ of the curb in front of your home or business on the five holidays mentioned above
- They deliver and place your flag prior to the holiday and we retrieve it after the holiday. They are responsible for replacement of any flag and they store the flags between holidays.
- If you wish to display more than one flag at a single address, you can save $10 on each flag. Between Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day, click subscribe on-line or contact us for prorated pricing and multi-flag discounts.

(Subscriptions received within 10 days prior to a flag holiday are not guaranteed delivery until the next holiday.)
