(Festus, Crystal City) The Festus-Crystal City Elks Lodge #1721 is in the process of raising funds to erect a very large American flag in the future. Chip Price is the current Exalted Ruler of the lodge. He says it will be quite the spectacle once they have it placed.

Price says they will be holding a golf tournament in September to help raise additional funds for the project.

The golf tournament to benefit the flag project will be held on Saturday, September 17th. For more information and to sign up a team or to be a sponsor, contact the Festus-Crystal City Elks Lodge at (636) 937-0910.
