Flags for Lake City

Just before 9/11 a truck with Amercian flags was stolen at the Lake City Mini Park. The truck has been recovered, but the Lake City Lions are still short on flags to service all the businesses in the area who contract with the Lions to place flags on holidays.

If you or your business could sponsor flags for the Lions, they would appreciate it! They estimate the cost with a pole and eagle is $15/each. Please make checks payable to Lake City Lions Club. Mail to: 12531 28th Avenue NE, Seattle, WA 98125.

Thank you!



Report: Truck, four stolen flags found after tip

A stolen truck belonging to a Lake City Lions member —and four of the more than 30 missing flags that were to be placed on Lake City Way on September 11th— were recovered after a tip Thursday night.

KIRO/7, 97.3 KIRO FM and Lake City Live all reported about the theft of the flags that fly on Lake City Way for each federal holiday. It was a tip from someone that saw the story that led to the discovery of the truck in Mount Lake Terrace.

Only four of the more than 30 flags were in the truck at the time of the discovery. The Lions would like to recover all of the remaining flags.

While Lions members were removing the flags on the evening of Memorial Day, a man jumped into a truck they were loading with flags, and drove off. You can read our previous coverage here.

The community organization does not plan to place flags on Lake City Way on September 11th because of the theft of the flags. In 2013 documented the Lions placing the flags. You can see that coverage here.

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 documented the Lions flag efforts. You can see that here.
