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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 972-547-2708 for more information.
