Memorial Day Reflections 2019

On Friday, May 24, 2019, approximately 105 students and 10 staff members from 7th Grade Cluster D, Keene Middle School visited the Monadnock View Cemetery to decorate the graves of veterans. Prior to the field trip, students learned about the history and significance of Memorial Day in classes and in a whole-school assembly. Students met members of the VFW and assisted them in placing flags at the cemetery. Cluster D donated 288 flags. Students wrote reflections about their experiences.  Their responses were overwhelmingly positive.

“The most memorable part of the visit was being able to honor those who had fallen in battle.”

“People care about the fallen and want to honor them and thank their families.”

“It felt meaningful to put flags by the graves.”

“The most memorable part of the visit was was walking around and seeing all the the people who died for our freedom. It really showed me how much they sacrificed.”

“It felt good to do community service to honor those who gave their lives for our country.”

The Beginning: Flag-Works 20 Years Ago

Flag-Works LogoFlag-Works has come a long way since its inception 20 years ago, but its the people we have serviced that really made Flag-Works grow into a successful business.  When I first purchase a room full of flags, I started selling them from the trunk of my car. The idea was to stop where ever I saw a faded or torn American flag and provide them with a replacement on the spot.  Well  my first stop, of course, was someone I knew.

That stop was at the time T&T Power, he purchase 4×6′ nylon American flag with sewn stripes and embroidered stars.  My firsts sale.  Thank you Bill.  Since then T&T power has successfully grown into a multi million dollar business now known at North Country Tractor Supply doing business selling John Deere tractors in Concord NH, Dover NH, Ossippi NH, Sanford Me.  Congratulation on your great success.

Okay, that sale was a setup.  Not the next one. I went 300 yards down the road, and saw two big  faded flags at Merriam Graves gas supply.  I walked in and sold them a 5×8′ US flag with sewn stripes and embroidered stars and a 5×8′ state of New Hampshire flag.  I then went out and lowered their faded flags and installed the new ones. Merriam Graves is now Airgas with multiple locations through out the area.  They are still a customer and we wish them well on their continued success.

I continued to travel the surrounding area knocking on doors and selling flags.

My first location was on the Second floor office above Bitz and Bytes computer.  A friend and I soon determined that I needed a location that was visible from the street and had windows.  That location,

202-204 South Main circa 2001

202-204 South Main circa 2001

204 South Main St. Concord NH, was conveniently located next to Vinnies Pizza (great pizza), which had plenty of parking and visibility.  However, I soon out grew that space, and added the location beside me. I was growing, sales in American Flags and decorative flags was brisk.

Fortunatly, I saw that custom flags should be a larger part of my work.  That happened.  We soon grew into on of the premiere custom applique manufacture in the country.  I’m not going to list them here but I will be creating a larger gallery on my website for them. To name a few, Raytheon, New Jersey Net, Post Cereals, Roger Williams University Etc.   Below are  index cards of our past customers flags.   More later.

The motto became “Live Free Or Die,” as once voiced by General John Stark, the state’s most distinguished hero of the Revolutionary War, and the world famous Old Man of the Mountain was voted the official state emblem.

The motto was part of a volunteer toast which General Stark sent to his wartime comrades, in which he declined an invitation to head up a 32nd anniversary reunion of the 1777 Battle of Bennington in Vermont, because of poor health. The toast said in full: “Live Free Or Die; Death Is Not The Worst of Evils.” The following year, a similar invitation (also declined) said: “The toast, sir, which you sent us in 1809 will continue to vibrate with unceasing pleasure in our ears, “Live Free Or Die; Death Is Not The Worst Of Evils.”
