With Veterans Day next month, the Mercer Island Kiwanis Club is reminding local businesses of their flag service.

The Mercer Island Kiwanis Club offers an American flag service to local businesses by providing a high-quality American flag and managing the display and take-down of that flag on seven federal holidays: Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, the Fourth of July,Labor Day and Veterans Day.

The service costs $50/year.

To order the flag service in support of the Kiwanis Club’s efforts to serve children while celebrating major holidays with an American flag, contact M.I. Kiwanis Club president Carol Mahoney at 360-434-5932 or carolmahoney12@yahoo.com.

Founded in 1960, the Mercer Island Kiwanis Club is a nonprofit community service organization focused on changing the world by serving the needs of children. Kiwanis supports local nonprofit organizations, and sponsors youth community service clubs at Lakeridge (K-Kids Club) and Mercer Island High School (Key Club).

The M.I. Kiwanis Club welcomes new members. The club meets at noon on the first and third Tuesdays of each month, upstairs at the Island House Senior Living Community.
