Serving Community

In 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 more than 24 miles of our city streets.

In 2006, my husband, John, and I gathered a group of individuals together to raise funds for a Veteran’s Memorial that would honor the military as well as local police officers, firemen and EMT’s who serve and protect in our community.  There were issues with finding property and the group disbanded.   I was delighted when a  group of veterans contacted me inquiring as to whether I was still interested in working on the memorial project and would like to join them.  I JUMPED at the opportunity!  Now property has been made available adjacent to the library near the intersection of Surina Way & Meridian Streets as the home for a  MEMORIAL TO HONOR VETERANS, POLICE & FIREFIGHTERS.  Our committee announced the creation of the memorial on April 29th.  Our fundraising efforts are going well.  The projection dedication will be in June prior to the Freedom Festival.
