A Gift for the Person Who Has Everything

What do you give to someone who has everything?  Consider giving the gift of a flag.  The Ely Sons of the American Legion are offering to put a flag in front yards for the 4 major patriotic holidays (Flag Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July and Veterans Day) again in 2017.  It makes the perfect gift and it requires no work.  Find out more here.
