2021 Flag Program Sells Out!!

Thank you Okotoks for your amazing support. Our 2021 Canadian Flag program is now sold out!
 
We couldn't do this without the support of our key sponsor, Quigley Electric. We also want to thank Mr. Green's welding class at the Foothills Composite High School, who helped build the flag supports. And finally, we couldn't do this without the Rotarians and friends who provided the labour to assemble and distribute the flags.
 
Job well done!
