Adopt-A-Flag Program returns

City of Tehachapi

The City of Tehachapi announces the return of the Adopt-A-Flag Program allowing businesses, organizations, families, or individuals to sponsor an American Flag in Downtown Tehachapi.

The sponsorship program, known as the "Adopt-A-Flag" program, gives Tehachapi and its residents an opportunity to show off their pride and patriotism for America. The City has approximately 100 decorative light posts on Tehachapi Boulevard, Green Street, F Street, Curry Street, Robinson Street and the Mill Street corridor right off Highway 58 that will be available for Adopt-A-Flag sponsors. The program will offer sponsorship for a term commencing Memorial Day and ending Labor Day, or for as long as weather permits.

For $50 sponsors can adopt a flag at an available spot of their choice. In exchange for sponsoring the American flag, a personalized decal will be placed on the decorative light post to display the name of the participating sponsor, or to indicate a dedication to a certain person or party per the sponsor's request. Logos made available (in pdf format) are encouraged as well and may be submitted with your sponsorship form or emailed to [email protected].

To coincide with the success of the City's Adopt-A-Flag Program, the City recently launched a similar program to Adopt-A-Pole for the Christmas decorations. We will refresh your decal as the Christmas decorations are displayed and you will receive a discount on the cost when you opt into both programs.

Please call Grace at (661) 822-2200, ext. 103 for any questions. Applications will also be available online at http://www.liveuptehachapi.com/DocumentCenter/View/5810/Adopt-A-flag-2021.
