Flying Flags on the Fourth of July

The Idaho Springs Lions Club has a program for the city. We hang flags in front of stores on the main streets of town for each holiday during the year. The stores along the street contribute, to have a flag flown in front of their store. This way, it becomes a fund-raising venture for the club, funding a scholarship at the local high school.
