Lions: “Sponsor A Flag, Foster Patriotism”

Lions: “Sponsor A Flag, Foster Patriotism”

The “Dobber Brazzell Memorial Flag Project” is one aspect of Lions International here in Winn Parish that is truly a community cooperation endeavor. Anyone driving through Winnfield on designated flag days and/or patriotic holidays will have seen the dozens of unfurled, waving American flags lining the streets of downtown Winnfield.

The project originated as a way to raise money for the many worthy projects of the local Lions Club. A few of these causes include eye care and research, the Lions Handicapped Children’s Camp at Leesville, free eyeglasses for the needy in our area, and “Just Because” Rose Day which uses dozens and dozens of roses to cheer our ladies and nursing home residents in the area.
