Creston Lions Parade of Flags
The Creston Lions will sponsor a Parade of Flags for the village. With a $30.00 subscription the Lions will place a 3′ x 5′ American flag in the front yard of your home or business at each of five holidays. Lions install a buried pipe in your lawn for easy placement of the flag staff and cap the pipe when not in use. Now is your chance to join your neighbors in this special holiday display for Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Patriots Day, and Veterans Day. Applications for the Creston Parade of Flags can be picked up at Pike Station, Creston Library, and City Hall, or see your favorite Lion.
