Flag sale to benefit Fire Fighters’ Museum

A total of 65 flags were flown at the Fire Fighters' Memorial at Kingdom City last year during Memorial Day. The flags were purchased for $35 each as a contribution to a proposed Fire Fighters Museum to be built near the memorial. Organizers of the flag sale hope to fly at least 300 flags at the memorial this year.

Firefighters and their supporters from around the state will have an opportunity to purchase a flag to be flown on Memorial Day at the Fire Fighters’ Memorial in Kingdom City.

The flags memorialize and honor firefighters, veterans and others. Funds raised through flag sales will be used to benefit a museum firefighters want to build in Kingdom City near the Fire Fighters’ Memorial.

Ron Baker of Fulton is coordinating flag sales for the fundraising project.

Baker said last year 65 flags were purchased and posted at the memorial, and were visible from traffic along Interstate 70.

“We hope to expand the effort statewide this year and post hundreds of flags flying in the breeze,” Baker said.
