Flags from Rotary Club in Stonebridge Ranch, McKinney Texas

Flags from Rotary Club in Stonebridge Ranch,   McKinney Texas

Flags are flying all over town thanks to the Rotary Club of McKinney Sunrise group.  The Rotary Club has a wonderful flag lease program that helps neighborhoods celebrate 5 patriotic holidays a year without fail.  The flag lease program also helps raise money for many worthwhile causes in the community such as Make-a-Wish foundation, local children's health clinics, high school leadership programs, and clothing assistance programs just to name a few.  Rotary's reach also extends worldwide in helping to eradicate polio and in providing clean water in India.

 Many U.S. flags along street in front of Stonebridge United Methodist Church

 How the Rotary Flag Lease works:

  • Order your 3' x 5' U.S. flag online at www.McKinneySunriseRotary.org -- cost is $45 per year.
  • A simple PVC sleeve with a cap is put into the ground near your curb.  Nothing attaches to your home and the sleeve is not visible above the ground.
  • 5 times a year a nice person from the Rotary, possibly me, delivers a flag on a 10-foot metal pole to your house and places it into the sleeve next to your curb.
  • After the holiday, the Rotary Club picks up the flags and stores them until the next patriotic holiday.
  • Holidays honored are Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, and Veteran's Day. 

Now, you'll be able to wave the flag proudly and the Sunrise Rotary Club will take care of it all for you.  Your neighbors will love your patriotism, and, you'll be helping support many wonderful causes here in your own home town.  Way to be a good neighbor!

NICE! I wish I knew of a program about here. I would be advertising it to all my clients. I"ve always thought a good flag is hard to find and I do believe they actually sell houses as well.

Thanks Todd -- I think it's one of the greatest fund raisers.  Everybody benefits -- the money goes to great causes and everyone in the neighborhood gets to enjoy the display -- I think it's terrific.

Hi Scott -- It really is a wonderful sight to drive down the streets of the neighborhoods and see so many flags flying!

Hi Melanie, I love this. A community I work in has this type of program. I wish it were available in every community. I used to deliver 390 flags , small ones ( 12x 18 )and place them in the perfect straight lines ) always equal distance from the roadway) in a community I worked in for a lot of years. I used to get goose flesh from the sensation of seeing them . It tool about 4 hours the prior midnight of Memorial Day, the 4th and Labor Day and I removed them at the following sunset ( took about 90 minutes ). Over the years of doing that, I had over 50% market share.

I love seeing all those flags.  I wish we did the same thing in Valpo.

Hi William -- I'm sure you DID have those flags in perfectly straight lines!! :)  It is so fun to get that thrill of delight when you see all the flags decorating the neighborhood -- I'm sure your farm loved you for it!

Hi Irene -- Thanks!

Hi Melanie - It looks wonderful! And for great causes, too. We have a park in town where the flags are flown, I love it when they do that.
