'Flag station' project gets money, looking for donations

June 26th, 2011 · No Comments

The crossing flag project that we wrote about last week is moving forward with more funding by the Wallingford Chamber of Commerce.

The initial $300 was allotted by the Wallingford Community Council, now they have an extra $100 to add crossing flags.

From Jon deLeeuw, Vice President of the Community Council:

Demand is going to outstrip what I can afford; however if the community can donate materials, then I can order more flags. The materials needed are 4″ diameter PVC pipe, and 4 inch end caps – stuff that many people have kicking around in their garage.

I would ask these things of the neighborhood:

1) Donations of 4″ PVC pipe greater than 12 lengths, plus 4″ PVC End caps
2) Contact me before July 1st on what they have to donate – I need time to figure out how many flags to order.
3) Bring the donated materials to the WCC booth at the street fair, July 9th
4) Volunteer to assemble buckets at the booth (3-4 volunteers for a couple hours would be great)
5) Decorate your bucket (yahoo)
6) Adopt a designated intersection, hang your buckets and get extra flags for restocking.

Any questions or comments can be directed to Jon (at Not A Number) or brought up and the next Wallingford Community Council meeting, July 6th, 7PM room 202, Good Shepherd Center.
