About Us

The Lake Highlands American Flag Project began in 2005 to provide a unique means for Lake Highlands residents to show their patriotism and to help Boy Scouts and Venturing Crew members raise funds for camping and other leadership experiences.  

The project is run by Troop/Crew 707 (sponsored by Elks Lodge 71) Troop/Crew 719 (sponsored by St. Patrick Catholic Church), and Troop 728 here in the Lake Highlands neighborhood of Dallas, Texas.
