The Sistersville Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6327 Ladies Auxilary members, Ann Doig and Rita Fallen are pictured above receiving a check from Sistersville resident, Gene Rice, owner of the Handi-man Company, for the American Flag fund drive set up by the Auxilary last week.
Below, Doig receives a check from City Recorder Diana Mace. The City of Sistersville would like to thank Tom Urban for his continued support fo the flag fund, which made their donation possible.
For a $20 donation, a flag can be purchased in memory or in honor of an individual or group and flown on certain holidays in Sistersville. Names of those purchasing flags as well as the names of those the flags are purchased for will appear in the Tyler Star News.
At least 145 flags need to be purchased as soon as possible in order to get the flags flying by Veteran’s Day.
“These American flags are made in America, and not cheap imitations from a foreign country.,” Doig commented.
Donations may be sent to: Wesbanco, 250 Charles St., Sistersville, WV 26175 or VFW Post 6327, 504 Diamond St., Sistersville, WV 26175. Checks should be made payable to the “VFW Auxiliary Flag Fund”.
