(LaPorte, IN) - Things are looking very patriotic in LaPorte’s downtown area. Jim Roy, owner of The Floor Store has once again purchased about 400 flags and all of the equipment needed for their installation. Roy said he started buying the flags in 2001 when the LaPorte Jaycees no longer could afford to buy them. He also was inspired by the terrorist attack in New York City and other parts of the nation in September of 2001.
Roy said he has no plans to stop providing the city with flags usually put up by the street department in early June and taken down in the middle of July.
