|South Russell ~ Show Your Colors
Each year since 1989, a group of volunteer residents from the Village of South Russell have proudly decorated the village in the red, white and blue.
We need your help to continue this grand tradition.
Flags are flown from the utility poles on Bell Road,East Washington Street and Chillicothe Road.
The first season is early summer when flags are raised for the Memorial Day, Flag Day and Independence Day holidays. Flags are then removed and raised in the last week in August for the Labor Day holiday. They are stored till late fall and raised for Election Day and Veteran's Day.
After November 11th the flags are removed, as weather permits, for winter storage.
The flags have flown on other occasions and special situations.
Extreme weather conditions take a toll on the flags and the poles.
Flags, poles and hardware are purchased through private donations of the village residents and other patriotic Americans.
A flag and hardware costs $20.00.
Show your pride in this great country by purchasing a flag
to be flown in the village.
Please send donations to:
