DBA drive brings new flags to downtown

ELKO – Commercial, Railroad and Idaho streets were given some extra color this summer thanks to the Downtown Business Association’s “Flags Over Elko” fundraising drive.

The DBA matched funds donated by the VFW and “multiplied by three for Railroad and Commercial streets,” said DBA Coordinator Rushele Melton.

More than 50 flags were replaced or mounted by Boy Scout Troop 93 led by Jeremy Draper, who also installed poles and brackets as part of their community service project, said Melton.

The project replaced about 20 flags on Idaho Street and added another 30 on Commercial and Railroad Streets.
