We have been so blessed in our community.  The Flag Holiday Program was a huge success again this year.  We would like to thank the residents and businesses in Mount Horeb and Blue Mounds for their participation in and support of the Flag Holiday Program.  This year the Flag Holiday Program volunteers from the Mount Horeb American Legion, VFW Post 9511, the Mount Horeb Wrestling Club and the Immanuel Lutheran Youth Group placed over 385 American Flags in front of homes and businesses.  Mount Horeb and Blue Mounds were decked out in the Red, White and Blue for Memorial Day, Flag Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day.  

What a great show of patriotism from our small communities.  We will continue to grow the program with your help next year.  We would love to continue to paint these communities Red, White and Blue.  We want to thank everyone who purchased a subscription to have a Flag displayed for each of the flag holidays, as well as, everyone that gave up time on their holidays to put them out.  Thank you to Jess Miller and Pastor Jared for allowing us to store the flags at the storage facility and thank you Ron Haag for donating PVC piping for us to use when we build the flags.  Thank you, Paul Hodgson for designing the templates that the teams use so that the flags are all placed uniformly.  We would also like to thank Glaciers Edge – Thrivent Financial Strategy Team, Kelly, Roger and Erin Deterding for bringing this program to our community.  Without everyone’s help this program would not be as successful as it is.

One hundred percent of the proceeds stay here in Mount Horeb.  The four organizations involved split the proceeds based on participation in the different aspects of the program.  Thank you again for your continued support.

Your Mount Horeb American Legion is here to serve our great community.  We are also charged with caring for our Veterans so if you know of a Veteran in our community in need please let us assist them if we can.
