The Scottsburg Kiwanis Club has hosted a Flag Program in Scott County for over fifty years Every major holiday, sleepy residents wake up to see Kiwanis Flag Teams slowly pulling four trailers with nearly fifty American Flags each reaching out to the four corners of Scottsburg.  These teams post the national colors on businesses and residences who are flag partners.  These flag partners donate $30 a year to the Scottsburg Kiwanis to support programs and projects for kids in Scott County and in return the Kiwanis mount a bracket in front of their business/residence and raise an American Flag eight holidays each yearIt’s an important fundraiser for the Kiwanis and a great community service to make our community more festive and patriotic during the holidays.  It’s also become a tradition that residents expect to see early morning and early evening as the flag trailers return to retrieve the national colors.  In many cities and towns the local government owns the flags and hires someone to post the flags on important occasions.  In Scottsburg it’s the citizens and the local Kiwanis Club who own the flags, put them out and take them in each holiday.
Monte Roth, fellow Kiwanian, usually pulls the trailer to post flags on the City Route.  He has been most successful in getting youngsters to help put out the flags.  Some of the kids are Boy Scouts, some are members of Service Leadership Clubs the Kiwanis sponsor in Scott County Schools.  All are often accompanied by proud parents.  These pictures from Patriots Day show Billy Harris and his son Will helping post flags on the City Route around the SquareA new generation providing a priceless service.
Sometimes we don’t know how much people notice what we do in Scott County.  I attended a commemorative service for 911 at Scottsburg High School that morning after we had put the flags out.  I was proud of the comments I heard from several students who told me they knew September 11th was an important day because as they rode their buses to school the American flags were flying all along the bus routes. 
John Mastin was Chair of the Flag Program for many years and did a superb job.  He’s one of a long line of Kiwanians who have made this program special.  This is one of our signature programs.  We should never take it for granted.  It touches the hearts of members of our community in ways we may not always know.    We owe a special thanks to our flag teams.  Some of the current members are John Mastin, Brent Inman, Terry Davis, Ross St Clair, Don Cooper, Chris Wakeman, Monte Roth, Dave Church, Dave Kilburn, Bob Riley, Jim Lakner, and Jim Lewis.  Thanks also to all our Flag Partners, nearly 190 plus, whose support of this program allows Scottsburg to put on its colors every holiday, rain or shine, snow or ice, heat or cold
