The Official Big Flag Patriotic Shirt Selected



The Big Flag Shirt, worn by the committee and select guests at the Big Flag Installation Ceremony on Memorial Day, is now available for purchase by the public. Said Chairman Rice, “The response by everyone that commented on the shirts was so overwhelming and the design so patriotic, that the committee, decided to make them the official Big Flag Shirt and make them available to the public. A portion of the each sale will supplement the Go Big Flag fund raising effort, led by Fund Raising Chairman, Leo Sutera. The fund is being developed to cover future expenses regarding maintenance, repairs, electric power, lights and flags guaranteeing that no public funds will ever be needed.”

Committee member Litha Berger, President of the Caxambas Republican Club volunteered to develop the program with our Marco Island supplier, Sunshine Stitchers. Litha is shown wearing one of the shirts. Business owner Janice Ayasun supported the idea whole heartedly, and has developed a store inventory of shirts to make available for the future National Holidays. Said Janice, “It is our pleasure to support this patriotic community effort. The shirts come in Red, White and Blue and available in styles for men and women. There is also a style in children’s sizes. Personalized monograms of names and designs are optional. We are pleased to donate a portion of every sale of the USA Freedom Polo to the Go Big Flag fund raising effort”

Shirts are available at the Sunshine Stitchers, located in the Chamber of Commerce Plaza, 1106 ½ North Collier Boulevard, Marco Island.

Litha Berger commented, “The original shirts were donated to the committee by Islander, Carole Roberts. Carole suggested to the committee that uniformity of dress would be a positive visual addition at such a memorable occasion as the Big Flag Ceremony”.

Commented Rice, “Once again, a Marco Island business displays it’s generosity in sponsoring a community effort”.
