Lake City Lions flags, truck stolen on Labor Day, no flags for September 11th anniversary


For decades the Lake City Lions have been placing flags along Lake City Way on federal holidays, bringing color and pride to our neighborhood.

But on Labor Day their proud community contribution was ruined when a man jumped into a member’s idling truck in the Lake City Mini Park, and drove off. The truck was stolen, along with 30 of Lake City’s red, white and blue flags.

Lions member Chuck Dickey said the theft comes just days before the flags were to again be raised on September 11th, Patriots Day. He said there will be no flags in Lake City on the important day of remeberance.

The truck is a green 2003 Ford F-150.  License plate number B24567P WA. If you see the truck, a pile of flags, or have any information, please call 9-1-1.

In 2013 SeattlePI.com documented the Lions flag efforts. You can see that here.
