Friday Flags in Prospect CT June 2023+

While sitting at the computer reading the blogs this morning, I realized that I didn't have a flag to post for Friday. Not a problem, as I only had to look out the window to see a possibility.

To the left of the front stoop is the UConn banner. I am a 1971 graduate and proud of the school and the teams. It is standing atop the red dwarf maple that adorns the right side of the stoop.

On the opposite side of the front porch is our country's flag. It is always out there, no disrespect intended.

I have flown the flag ever since I moved into my first home in 1978, as a matter of pride in my country and for the service I gave it.

I will keep a sharper eye this week to find a business that shares the sentiments.

There is always the main streets through Prospect that each carry a flag. They were put there for Memorial Day and will stay though the summer.

Thanks for sharing.  The American flag is a beautiful thing to behold.

I'm so happy to live in a town where we fly our American flags.  I can walk down a street right now with 10 houses and see at least 7 flags flying.

Good morning Ed Silva ,

My flag is always out in front of my house flying proudly! I just wish more residents would do the same thing! The American Flag is something I value and what it stands for!

Lise Howe   I believe so as well. I am an avid follower of the Friday Flags post after seeing it from Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho 

faye schubert   Ours is a small cul-de-sac and with 12 houses, I can only see 3 that fly the flag

Will Hamm   With the success the basketball teams have had, it gets recognition as well.

Nina Hollander, Broker   Well, coming from someone as traveled as yourself that is a positive.

Ed good job in flying our flag.  By the way I was cursing around Vietnam in 1971

I didn't realize that you were a UCONN alum, I will have to remember that when our teams are playing against each other in basketball.
