Flag day has come and gone, but the East Valley Masonic High Twelve Club #765 is on the lookout to make sure local businesses and other organizations are properly displaying the USA flags.

Noticing “too many USA flags torn, dirty and not properly displayed,” the club’s members set out on June 14 to present six area businesses with certificates highlighting their proper display of the flag, and proper efforts to “honor our country, our fallen warriors or veterans, both past and future.”

The businesses (and their representatives) presented with certificates on Flag Day included Craig Berge of Berge Ford in Mesa; Robert Allen, vice president of American Savings Life Insurance in Mesa; Barry Lindstrom of The Car Washer in Mesa; Bill Hayes, battalion chief with Mesa Fire Department; Nickole Chaffman, manager of McDonald's; Megan Petersen of Fry’s Marketplace. Representatives of the club say they are planning to honor more businesses on future patriotic days.
