American flags grace Hubbard streets

Flags placed in Hubbard

HUBBARD, Ohio (WYTV) – A real estate company and church are teaming up to blanket Hubbard with American Flags.

Volunteers with Covenant Life Church are placing about 5,000 flags on lawns throughout the city and township.

The flags were purchased by Burgan Real Estate. In its first year, only about 1,000 flags were placed throughout Hubbard, but Rich Suhovecky said the effort just keeps growing.

“The citizens of Hubbard asked about it all year long, and we must have gotten about 100 telephone calls just his past week say, ‘gee, you skipped my house,’” said Suhovecky. “We can’t cover every house, but if somebody really wants one, we will deliver a flag to their home.”

All of the flags are made in America.
