“This is one of the important fundraisers for Civitan club,” said Civitan member Connie Coleman. “Displaying the flags throughout the community allows the club to award two scholarships each year, help build ramps for handicap individuals, support the Butler Co. activity center, as well as other worthy projects.”

The club displays the flags 10 times a year.  Participating businesses pay $35 for theannual flag contract which makes it possible.

Coleman said that The Camellia City Civitan Club would like to thank the following businesses for participating.
