American flags Hillsboro-Brentwood Exchange Club

On Friday members of the Hillsboro-Brentwood Exchange Club displayed 110 American flags on Franklin Road, which will stay up through Memorial Day.

Longtime-exchange club member Edith Johnston said in a phone call that the flag program has taken place for more than 30 years.

“It’s promoting what’s so important about our country, it’s patriotism, it’s having a value for what people have gone through to preserve our liberties,” Johnston said.

The Hillsboro-Brentwood Exchange Club is a service organization that has been serving the Brentwood community for over 60 years and picked up the flag display tradition after the original Brentwood Exchange Club disbanded.
