American Flag Program

Since 2011, the chamber, local community and Jason Barclay from the Holihan-Atkin-Barclay Funeral Home have partnered to ensure that American Flags are proudly displayed on the Bridge in downtown Grand Ledge. 

Jason puts the flags up on the bridge each year the week before the St. Patricks Day Parade in March and leaves them up until after Veterans Day in November. Each year after the poles and banners are taken down, a member of the Cole-Briggs Memorial Honor Guard Post 48 in Grand Ledge picks up the used banners and disposes of them in the appropriate manner. Each year 20-24 new American Flag banners are purchased along with the corresponding hardware. The annual expense averages about $800.
 
The chamber and Jason Barclay are proud to be involved with this community project. It is one way the Grand Ledge community can show we are patriots and love our country, but more importantly it is a way for us to show honor, appreciation and great respect for the men and women who have protected the freedom we all enjoy. This project is a way for us to remember those who paid the ultimate price, those military veterans who have served and the men and women who are currently defending our freedoms.

We are reaching out to our chamber members to see if you would like to get involved in this project and contribute to the $800 cost of this community project. If you or your business feel so inclined, you can make your donation and we will honor your support on our website. If you would like to remain anonymous, we can honor that as well.
