A new 40 foot American Flag purchased by VFW will be unveiled to the public at a special ceremony on Thursday, April 5th at 5:00 pm at the Maquoketa High School.
The 25-by-40 foot American flag resembles those walked onto the field at professional football and baseball games. Twenty-eight people are needed to carry the flag. The service is free; however, the VFW will accept monetary donations to support community programs. Schools and the community can call to arrange use of the flag.
