Residents of the Basehor area that appreciated/enjoyed the display of our great American flag may donate an amount of their choosing to help the Basehor VFW post buy and maintain their flag inventory. This year's display was possible due to the generous donation of the Basehor pride group just prior to July 4th but the VFW spent more than they were donated in order to fly the flags all the way from Leavenworth road to Parallel (approx 40 flags), A generous donation by the Basehor business' and residents would be appreciated so we can continue this important service. Thanking you in advance, VFW Post 11499 P.O. Box 288 Basehor, Ks 66007 or call 913-526-0080 and we will come pick up your donation.
