The Exchange Club of Aberdeen plans to fly flags on Saturday for community appreciation and the pheasant hunting opener.
This activity depends upon the weather. The group planned to fly flags on Gypsy Days and Native American Day, but weather conditions prevented this task.
Youth organizations are hired to put up and take down the flags in support of the Exchange Club's four pillars: youth projects, Americanism, community service and prevention of child abuse.
