Realtors carry on Fourth of July flag-planting tradition

For 25 years, Realtors with Prudential Bob Yost Homesale Services have been planting American flags each Fourth of July in the front yards of thousands of homes in two Pennsylvania counties — York and Adams. They do it not so much to drum up business, but to carry on a tradition started by the late Yost, a World War II vet, the York Daily Record reports. About 250 real estate agents participated in this year’s event, putting up 12,000 to 15,000 flags. Source: ydr.com.
