Racine County residents are invited to help design a new Racine County flag.

The Racine County Youth In Governance students will host a public meeting to gather comments on what should be incorporated in the flag design at 6:30 p.m. Monday at the Ives Grove Office Complex, 14101 Washington Ave.

“We are excited to see the concepts our youth leaders will bring forward for this very important project.  I have every confidence they will produce a beautiful and meaningful design that we can be proud of,” said County Board Chairman Russell Clark.

Those who attend can share their design ideas and symbolism with the committee. Once the final design has been decided, a resolution will be written and submitted to the Racine County Board for possible adoption in April.

“This mission is intended to create greater unity among the students.  One of the most important things they can learn during the Youth In Governance program is how to collaborate,” said committee Chairman Supervisor Monte Osterman.

For more information please contact Racine County UW-Extension (262)-767-2929, or committee Chairman Monte Osterman at 262-308-2766.
