Ebby Halliday, Realtors was founded on three points of service – one of those being service to the community. And each year, as a service to her community, Ebby Associate Nell Anne Hunt literally paints the town red, white and blue by placing American flags all across the city of Irving.
Her annual “Great Flag Caper” has grown tremendously over the past 17 years. What started with Nell Anne placing a few hundred flags herself has grown to include an army of hundreds who plan to place up to 40,000 flags this July 4th holiday.
