The Joshua Area Chamber of Commerce is asking Joshua businesses and residents to display flags it has available for purchase at annual patriotic holidays.

The flags cost $20 and are attached to a steel pole.

The intent of the chamber is to increase displays of patriotism and national pride in the community, and also to remember those who have served in the nation's armed forces.

Proceeds from the flag sale will help fund the chamber's relocation to new space at the McPherson House on S. Main Street. The home has not been occupied for many years and requires some renovation. The chamber intends to make the home a historical interest site in the city.
