Thanks First Responders!
A wall of names …..
Help us create an online “Thank You” card for any First Responder to see.
Post a picture of an apple pie, hot dog, baseball or other game you are enjoying with your family or friends and show some “good ‘ol flag waving fun!”
Your fun with family, friends and country shows First Responders and health care workers you appreciate the health, safety and security that they provide with their dedication and sacrifice. We lost too many First Responders, Health Care Workers and others to count in 2021 to COVID. 54 Peace Officers in Georgia were lost to all causes. Many EMT’s and Paramedics have quit and feel under appreciated, many other health care workers have left their frontline positions. Lets change that and have some fun as the best way to show our appreciation and say
Take pictures like these of what you are doing on May 15 with friends and family and livestream your fun and vote live at the event. Your fun creates a giant online Thank You card and party for the Giant USA flag that flips over to the “Back The Blue” flag.
This page will not open until “High Noon” on May 15, 2022 so that everybody has a chance to sign it and upload pictures.

A mutiny! A giant floating USA flag “mutinies” to “Back The Blue”
For fun during the celebration, a Pirate theme called “Mutiny Against Crime” occurs at a ficticious place called “The Pirate Dive Bar”. There you will find real contests for apple pie, hot dogs, baseball and more being run by lying, cheating pirates who take bribes while trying to steal your booty!
