Optimist Club & Boy Scouts Team up for Avenue of Flags

   The Towne Lake Optimist Club’s Avenue of Flags program has been well accepted in the TLHS community, for three reasons I believe. It helps beautify the neighborhoods, express appreciation of the U. S. flag and what it stands for, and helps the Optimists help the children of Cherokee County using flag-service subscription fees. We now have almost 100 subscriptions in TLHS. And we thank you, the board, and Douglas Property Management for your support.
 
To help us continue to grow the program we have solicited assistance from other organizations that focus on assisting the youth. We are in discussion with Troop 6410 of the Boy Scouts of America to provide at least one Flag Team composed of Boy Scouts and their leaders, to place and retrieve the flags.  At least two of the boys in the Troop live in TLHS. We will contribute a portion of our fees to the Troop. So the Avenue of Flags program in TLHS will be a fundraiser for the Optimist Club and the Boy Scout Troop by Veterans Day, assuming we finalize plans by then.
 
I will remain the Optimists’ coordinator for TLHS. The Optimists will continue to solicit subscriptions and will collect the fees. And the Scouts’ Flag Team will hand out Optimist Club literature to homeowners who might ask about the Program while they are placing or receiving flags. The Troop’s transport vehicle will display a magnetic identification sign.
 
We look forward to finalizing plans with the troop. And hearing from you about any comments you or others dealing with HOA management might have.  Please pass this along to the others.
 

Thank you.
