Community Flag Program

The South Central Band program will put a beautiful U.S. Flag on an 8ft pole in your yard on 5 flag flying holidays per year. The cost to have this service is an annual $38.

Flags/poles are stored at the school and delivered to residents within 2-3 days before the holiday or holiday weekend by band students. They will then be removed 2-3 days following the holiday (out of concern for the safety of our students, we cannot deliver or pick up flags during inclement weather).
