LINCOLNSHIRE, IL--(Marketwired - Sep 20, 2016) - Camping World, the nation's largest RV and outdoor retailer, and Good Sam, the world's largest RV owners' organization, today announced that they are continuing a tradition of honoring present and past members of our armed forces by installing a massive American flag at their Bartow, Florida RV SuperCenter. The 40x80' flag which covers 3,200 square feet, will fly on a 130' pole and is being installed as part of a project that Camping World and Good Sam began in February of 2014 to show their ongoing appreciation of America's veterans and active military members.
"It has been our vision to continue the tradition of raising these flags to show our company's support and appreciation to our country and to those that have sacrificed so much to keep our communities safe," stated Marcus Lemonis, Chairman and CEO of Camping World and Good Sam and host of CNBC's The Profit. "We love having the opportunity to bring together local communities to celebrate our great country and the brave men and women who have fought for us, and will continue raising these flags in other markets in the coming months."
Camping World of Bartow, which is located at 7400 State Road, 60 East, will hold an official flag raising ceremony on Saturday, September 24 at 9am. Refreshments and a light lunch will be served during the ceremony, which will be attended by the local Polk County Fire Rescue Peace Creek station, Lt. Regina Moran of the Polk County Sheriff's Office and members of American Legion Post 0008, Winter Haven FL will be on-site to assist in raising the flag. All local public service and safety members, military, veterans and community members are invited to attend this event.
Currently, the massive American flag flies high at over 75 Camping World SuperCenters across the country. Other dealerships that have recently erected the large American flags include locations in New Mexico, Arizona, Alabama, Georgia, Iowa, Ohio, Missouri, Texas, Michigan, New York, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Florida, South Dakota, Indiana, Idaho, Pennsylvania, Washington, Florida, New Hampshire, Virginia, New Jersey, North Carolina and Florida.
