Have you seen all the Canada flags around Salmon Arm this Labour Day?
Those flags were placed by the Rotary Club of Salmon Arm to show Canadian pride as well as support of Rotary.  Community businesses and householders rented a flag for $25 that was installed before Labour Day and will be taken down a few days after September 7th.  These flags will be put up again to acknowledge November 11, Remembrance Day.
The funds from the flag rentals will be going to local charity organizations to support their work during this tough times.
As well as all the donating householders, we’d like to thank the following businesses for their extra support:
  • Gord Erickson of Village West Developments, who has flags up around his businesses (water slide, Hideaway, etc.)
  • Ian Gray of Salmon Arm GM, who has flags along the boulevard in front of his dealership.
  • Bill Laird, who has flags set up at the Westgate Public Market.
  • Tony Nikic of Save On Foods, where there are flags set up by the store along 10th Avenue.
  • Milestone Fabricating, who did a great job donating his time to fabricate the flagpole stands
The Rotary Club of Salmon Arm sincerely thanks our supporters and wants everyone to know this will take place again next year for four event dates – Victoria Day, Canada Day, Labour Day, and Remembrance Day.  Watch social media for details on how to register for 2021.
