We thank our very first web site advertiser, Paul "the Flag Man" Bramson, of Ventura, California, for responding to our new advertising program just hours after it first went on our web site. We are seeking additional advertisers and donations to help fund the election season and activites beyond that. Just a few of us have been pulling that load and it's getting rather burdensome.
This company was a major force behind the replacement of the stolen/vandalized flags around the pier prior to July 4 -- and other nice civic deeds.
Please thank Mr. Flag Man and maybe buy some nice flags, poles, and other stuff from his Ventura-based volume mail order only business. He also makes local house calls for flag pole installations and certain deliveries.
You can call at (805) 647-FLAG (3524)

The American Flag is the most displayed and recognized banner in the world.
This event is for the whole family to observe and see how the country’s Symbol of Freedom is correctly retired. This event is free of charge and is open to the public.
