Flags for the Multicultural Festival

Megan Dudley has a request:

Hi all, I’m writing to ask for your help in talking to your friends about the festival flags for the September 1st Multicultural Festival. The City is unable to purchase the flags themselves and they asked me to organize this. With my circle of friends, I’ve gotten 20 orders so far but we have about 160 flag poles. I think since it is not going through the city, people might be apprehensive purchasing from me so direct connections will help.

I am ordering through a website where the flags are $18-30 dollars with most flags falling around $25. We are asking everyone to just give $25 for simplicity. If there is any $ left over, it will be donated to the festival for operations.

The flags are outdoor quality nylon in a 3′ by 5′ size. They will go on the existing wooden poles that are around town. If someone does donate $25 for a country of their choice, their name will go on a display downtown during the festival. The flags will be kept by the City for subsequent festivals. The site I am ordering through does not have any Native flags but if someone if interested in them, I can help them find something though the cost I found for the Oglala Sioux Nation for example was up to $163, there are less expensive options through Ebay.

I am collecting information about names and who people want to dedicate their flag to on a google form. It is ok to print out the form instead of doing on-line. If you run across people who want to do it, you can share this information with them:

If you are interested, please fill out this google form. The cost per flag is $25. The deadline for submission is August 10th. You can send a check to 1717 N Falcon Dr., Ridgefield WA 987642, drop off a check or cash with Sean McGill at  210 N. Main Avenue (Ridgefield Community Library) Tuesday 11-8 pm and Wed-Sat 10-6 pm or with Megan or Chris Dudley at a Meaningful Movies’ showing (3rd Wednesdays of the month, 7pm at the Old Liberty Theater).

Thanks so much for your help!
