Tonight we had the pleasure to welcome four members of the Rotary Club of Coronado!
Ivan Dunn and Tom Mitchell shared the history about their well-known flag project which was started in '94-'95 by member Bob Watson. The project, which has grown from the inception,  uses Rotary club volunteers to place American flags along both sides of the median on Orange Avenue.  There are currently 180 flags that are displayed eleven times per year, including Memorial Day, The 4th of July, Veteran's Day and Martin Luther king Day, in addition to other special dates throughout the year.  The club works closely with the City of Coronado and uses the police basement to store the trailer when not in use. Not only does this project promote patriotism in Coronado, but it also promotes the Rotary brand.  Ivan and Tom gave us a behind-the-scenes info on how the flag poles are inserted into the ground and protocols in place to respect the flag.
