Continued progress for Greenwood

Serving the Community

Serving the Community – 

July 4th 2009 065In 1996, my husband, John and I founded “Flags for Greenwood”, a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization in which citizens, friends and businesses joined together to raise funds to purchase American flags to be displayed along our city streets.   Initially, Flags for Greenwood started with 254 flags.  The “Avenue of Flags” now has over 900 flags spanning better than 24 miles of our city streets.

My husband, John, and I tried getting a group together to raise funds for a Veteran’s Memorial that would honor the military as well as local police officers and firemen who serve and protect in our community.  There were issues with finding property and the group disbanded.   Now property has been made available at Freedom Park and a new group which I am a member of is raising funds.
