Conroe Band Flag Program
January 20, 2020
I love the diversity found within Grand Central Park and I’m not just talking about the people. When Lee and I cruise around the neighborhood, we get to see splashes of the resident’s personality by the various landscaping designs they’ve chosen. We see everything from very simple to more elaborate designs that look like they could be featured in the Fine Gardening magazine.
There is a particular time when there is a sense of “uniform” observed within Grand Central Park that I absolutely love and that’s when the American flags come out. Yes! Six times a year on Patriotic holidays, flags are dispersed throughout Grand Central Park on behalf of the Conroe Tiger Band and residents who choose to participate in the flag program. The program costs $40 per year to receive a flag in front of your house that will be picked up a day or two after the holiday. It looks so good and the proceeds benefit our local High School. It’s a win / win.
If you’re not a resident of Grand Central Park, you could move here as fast as you can (wink,wink) or participate in the flag program in your neighborhood if you live in Conroe, that is. For additional information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The national flag holidays for the 2020 subscription cycle include: President’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Patriots Day, Veterans Day and Pearl Harbor Day.
I thought it would be appropriate to share a few fun facts about the American Flag:
The next time there’s a Patriotic Holiday, take a look at all of the flags within Grand Central Park!
