The Monticello Kiwanis Club will display American flags on the town square and Drew County Courthouse lawn in honor and remembrance of service men and women.

The Kiwanis Club is selling flags for $30 each to individuals or groups interested in honoring a particular soldier or group of soldiers with a flag on the town square or courthouse lawn.

A flag with an attached tag identifying the honored soldier(s) will be displayed. The donation will accommodate two names on the tag. There will be an additional $2 charge per name for more than two names. After the display period, the keepsake flag may be picked up by the donor at Union Bank.

All proceeds will fund bedroom makeovers for Drew County children in need, scholarships and Christmas presents for needy children.

The flags may be purchased from Monticello Kiwanis members by calling one of the following phone numbers:
