June 14, 2021 – Allenton, WI – The American Legion Auxiliary unit of the Fohl-Martin No. 483 in Allenton celebrated National Flag Day by honoring six businesses of Allenton which display the United States flag every day of the year.
Certificates were also awarded to Allenton Laundromat, Good Times Bar, Maysteel, National Exchange Bank and Trust, Sai Mart, and Sedgwicks.
Allenton residents who are displaying a flag daily were surprised to find a tag on their home’s doorknob. This doorknob hanger contained a message expressing appreciation to the residents for their patriotism in displaying the “stars and stripes” daily.
In 1985 a similar presentation of certificates was done to two businesses, Kasten Mfg. and Maysteel. “It is wonderful this year we are awarding 6 certificates to businesses in Allenton,” said the Legion’s Donna Kauper. “Kasten Mfg. is no longer in business and Maysteel continues to show its patriotism in flying the stars and stripes daily.”
