BRAWLEY — Main Street here just became a little more patriotic.
Banners with the markings of the U.S. Flag have been placed along Main Street in the city's downtown area between Palm Avenue and Plaza Street in memory of those who lost their lives in the recent terrorist attacks.
City Clerk Janet Smith said the city had received several requests by citizens and merchants for U.S. flags, but the city didn't have any.
That prompted city officials to purchase 32 red, white and blue banners and place them along Main.
The Kiwanis Club, Women's Community Club of Brawley, Soroptimist Club of Brawley, the Brawley Chamber of Commerce and downtown merchants have either allocated or pledged funds for the banners, she said.
