Exchange worn flags with a new ‘Stars and Stripes’
If you’ve been looking to replace your faded U.S. flag for the summer holidays, look no more.
Local independent insurance agency McClain Insurance Services can help. For the sixth year, local residents have the opportunity to retire worn flags in exchange for a bright new stars and stripes.
McClain Insurance will host the annual Flag Exchange program from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily June 9 -13.
The McClain Insurance office is at 10410 19th Ave. SE in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Everett, just south of Costco.
Citizens are invited to stop by and exchange their flag.
“We started this program in 2008 in honor of Flag Day as an effort to serve our community,” said Claudia McClain, owner of McClain Insurance Services.
“Hundreds of Snohomish County residents have taken us up on the offer to exchange their flag.
“We’ve learned that one of the biggest concerns for our neighbors is not necessarily the acquisition of a new flag, but rather the knowledge that there will be a proper ceremony for the retired flag,” she said.
