A little something about the flags you see on Main Street, Mt. Pleasant.
Each year the Club puts up American Flags along Main Street for holidays such as Veterans Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, the Fourth of July plus a few others.

However, when the Wounded Warriors come through town on their way to a rally in the mountains, the Mayor calls the club and asks the club to put the flags up for this and for other special occasions.
