The Rotary Club of High River is already getting ready for their Canada flag campaign.

The campaign, which has the club fly a Canada flag on your lawn over three long weekends over the year, has been tremendously successful.

Club President Ken Martell says it keeps their members hopping.

"Last year we had about 450 flags up. We start on the May long weekend. Our goal this year is 500 flags, so we're excited about it. It makes the town look pretty cool."

The cost is $50 for the year and the club comes out and plants the flag leading up to one of the three long weekends, including Canada Day.  Then they come back after the weekend to pick them up.

The campaign was started by the High River Rotary club and has now spread to many other clubs.

Martell says they have a busy year planned:

"We have our lobster boil, which is coming back too, which is always a huge event. It's going to be in June. And of course, the golf tournament is in July.  We have a new program this year that started last year, the gun show. 

The local club also helps out internationally, and just recently started a program teaching kids how to sew in Ecuador.

They meet weekly on Thursday nights at the Highwood Centre.
