ELKHART — The seventh annual Flags from the Heart campaign is underway and will culminate with a display in Elkhart’s Central Park on Memorial Day weekend.

The project is sponsored by the Elkhart Lions Club and will benefit charitable efforts.

In 2013, more than 200 flags were displayed in the downtown park.

Each flag is 3 feet by 5 feet and will feature a personal dedication from the flag purchaser honoring a loved one, significant place or organization.

New flags cost $25, but previously flown flags can be re-flown for $15.

The display will begin Saturday, May 24, and continue for three days.

All flags become the property of the purchaser or can be left with the Lions club.

For details or an application, contact Bill Lavery at 293-2434 or email him at billlavery@whislerandlavery.com. Or contact Brian Thomas at 596-7411. His email is brian10k@aol.com.
