Rotary Club American Spirit Program
The North St. Paul-Maplewood-Oakdale Rotary Club has developed a program for Americans to show pride in their country. The program called “The American Spirit” is designed to offer people the opportunity to have a flag on their boulevard during holidays. The funds from this program are then donated to organizations aiding local youth in our communities.
For a fee of $48 the North St. Paul-Maplewood-Oakdale Rotary Club volunteers will place a 3’ by 5’ American flag on a 10 foot pole in front of your home on six holidays.
Volunteers install flags by 8 a.m. and remove them the evening of the flag day. You do not have to be present. The Rotary Club is responsible for replacement of any flag soiled, damaged or stolen as well as storing the flags throughout the year.
