Members of the Doby's Mill Elementary School Flagship Club are responsible for putting up and taking down the flags each day. They work as a team to ensure that it is properly raised and lowered.  Here, club members Damion Powell, Luke Williams and Riley Cleghon perform their duties.  Bill Heil and several fellow members of American Legion Post 195 visited the school last year to teach third-, fourth- and fifth-graders who were participating in the club how to fold each flag, as well as the etiquette for raising and lowering the flags. These students check for any tears or problems with the flags. They record the weather and conditions of the flag in a notebook and check for advisories as to when the flag is to be flown at half staff.
