It is the universal custom to display the flag only from sunrise to sunset on buildings and on stationary flagstaffs in the open. However, when a patriotic effect is desired, the flag may be displayed twenty-four hours a day if properly illuminated during the hours of darkness. The flag should not be displayed on days when the weather is inclement, except when an all-weather flag is displayed.
The flag should be displayed on all days, especially on:
New Year's Day, January 1 Inauguration Day, January 20
Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday, third Monday in January Lincoln's Birthday, February 12
Washington's Birthday, third Monday in February Easter Sunday
Mother's Day Armed Forces Day, third Saturday in May
Memorial Day (half-staff until noon), the last Monday in May Flag Day, June 14
Father's Day Independence Day, July 4
Labor Day, first Monday in September Constitution Day, September 17
Columbus Day, second Monday in October Navy Day, October 27
Veterans Day, November 11 Thanksgiving Day
Christmas Day, December 25
and such other days as may be proclaimed by the President of the United States the birthdays of States (date of admission) and on State holidays.
The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning. Take flag to a local fire station for proper disposal."
Please remember that the sidewalk in front of and around your home is your responsibility to keep clear from snow/ice, and keep grass clippings from the street and sidewalks to give a cleaner and better look to our neighborhood. This will also eliminate a hazard to walkers/runners on those damp/slippery mornings and keep the clippings from being washed into the ponds where it feeds the algae. If we can all make an effort to do this, it will benefit the neighborhood greatly. Thank You!
The HOA Board periodically canvases the neighborhood for areas of concern which detract from the overall appearance of Plum Creek Farms.
During our most recent canvas, it was noted that several trash and recycling bins are being placed at the curb excessively early and others are being left at the curb for an excessive period of time.
The Board is asking ALL residents to follow these guidelines to help improve the appearance of our neighborhood.
Additionally, if you have items stored in a location that is visible from the street, those items must also be stored out of site from the street.
Your assistance in this effort would be greatly appreciated! Continued violation of these guidelines may result in fines.
