City Honors Servicemen and Women with Blue Star Flags

During the Fourth of July Holiday, the men and women working to protect our freedom are often celebrated. The City of McKinney has a special program to honor residents who are waiting for a loved one to return home from defending our nation’s freedom. Family members of servicemen and women who are currently deployed overseas are invited to receive a Blue Star Flag to hang in their homes as a symbol of support from the entire city for their service.

McKinney residents who are parent(s) or spouses of servicemen or women are eligible to receive a Blue Star Flag. The Blue Star Flag will be presented to the family during a McKinney City Council meeting, which take place the first and third Tuesday of the month at 6 p.m. in the Council Chambers, 222 N. Tennessee.

Fifty-nine McKinney families have been presented with Blue Star Flags since the program began. Please contact Cathy Lennox, McKinney Police Department Administrative Manager, at clennox@mckinneytexas.org or 972-547-2708 for more information.
