Displaying the American Flag on the main streets of Paradise on selected holidays is a long standing tradition. It’s called the Parade of Flags. This year’s Parade of Flags required extra generosity and effort. Housed in the Paradise Elk’s Lodge, the inventory of Flags were destroyed in the Camp Fire. Replacement Flags arrived soon, however, led by the Daughters of the American Revolution. Members of the local chapter of E Clampus Vitas produced additional Flags and the Rotary Club of Paradise purchased more. The new Flags were unpacked and attached to flag poles by “Clampers,” Elks, and Rotarians on June 30th. When the big day came, an ample crew of Rotarians, Clampers and others happily created a Parade of Flags on Skyway.
