Commander Mike Mclean and the Calais American Legion are expanding a project to install flags on the street lamps in downtown Calais. With a donation of $40.00, a bracket and American flag will be placed on each street lamp starting in May. 

Last year, approximately 150 flags were installed, and Commander Mike hopes to extend the flags down Main Street to South Street. 

This project, says McLean, is in support of the downtown "Patriotism" Project.
