Dear ABA Members and Friends,

The Applewood Business Association invites you to help celebrate Flag Day!

Each year, the ABA sponsors the placing of American flags along Youngfield St. and along 32nd Avenue from Flag Day (June 14) through Independence Day (July 5th). A special thanks to Prospect Recreation and Parks District who places and removes the flags.

The ABA is reaching out to its membership and local businesses seeking sponsorships of $50.00 per flag for a basic sponsorship and $100 per flag for a premium sponsorship. Each participant at the basic level will be entered to win a drawing for an American Flag and stand. Each premium sponsor will be recognized at upcoming ABA events and publications, as well as receive an American Flag and certificate commemorating their support! Proceeds from the sponsorships will be used to help fund the campaign to highlight and support Applewood businesses. Flags are not limited, you may sponsor as many as you want.

The American flag & stand will be generously donated again this year by Lori Bush-Engel of Modern Woodmen. The winning entry will be selected at the July ABA Board of Directors meeting from all entries and the winner notified by phone or by mail and a presentation will be made at the ABA Luncheon on Thursday, July 9th at Rolling Hills Country Club.
