The Hillcrest Lions Club is proud to announce that the City of San Diego, along with the major support of Todd Gloria’s office has moved to officially approve our Flag Program. For nearly six decades our club has been displaying American Flags during eight flag holidays. This activity has been a major fundraiser for our club. The funds we collect from businesses owners to display the american flag gets donated towards services for the blind.
The Union Tribune posted a news article about our Flag Program. You can see some of it below but follow the link to read the rest.
HILLCREST — Large American flags will continue to wave and flap in Hillcrest on patriotic holidays thanks to a new city permitting process that ends several months of uncertainty about the longtime program’s future.
The City Council approved nearly $2,000 on Tuesday to cover the annual fees for the new permits being paid by the Hillcrest-Mission Valley Lions Club and the Hillcrest Business Association.
