The need is great and the requests for assistance many — so the Rotary Club of Salmon Arm is now launching their next fundraiser. The Great Canadian Rent-a-Flag program.

The club is hoping to turn Salmon Arm into Canada's most patriotic town.  Being careful to maintain healthy distances, the club will install a large flag on a 10 foot pole on your front lawn over two long weekends this fall.   For a donation of $25, we'll put the flag in the week before Labour Day and Remembrance Day, and remove it the week after.  The registration fee of $25 covers BOTH instances.  All funds raised from this campaign will go towards those affected by Covid-19 and the economic downturn in Salmon Arm and area.

A flag will be installed at your home or similar location for a period of 7-14 days encompassing the Labour Day weekend and then again for Remembrance Day.  Next year, 2021, our club plans to expand these display periods to include the Victoria Day weekend, Canada Day, Labour Day and Remembrance Day.  Costs will be $25 for two display periods this year and $50 for 4 display periods next year.  All money raised will go to local community support because that is what Rotary does.
