Lemus Construction is proudly displaying a US flag that was flown over the United States Capitol — and presented to Victor Lemus in recognition of his “service and dedication to the community.”
The flag was delivered to Lemus at the request of U. S. Rep. Michael G. Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania. Over a number of years, Victor and his company have received numerous citations for their generosity and involvement in projects and programs that benefit the community. They include recognition for fund-raising to support the National Breast Cancer Foundation; citation by the Veterans of Foreign Wars for “meritorious and distinguished service in furthering the aims and ideals of the VFW; and a Business Partner of the Year Award from the Community Associations Institute for contributions of time, labor and money for various charitable programs.
In 2014, Lemus Construction earned status as a GAF “Community Contractor” for contributions to Habitat for Humanity, which builds affordable homes for low-income families. The Habitat organization also cited Victor and Lemus Construction as a “partner…collaborator…supporter…friend” for “the many ways that (Lemus) has helped to further the work and mission of Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County.” Habitat for Humanity estimated the value of materials and labor for the projects Lemus has worked on over the past eight years at exceeding $100,000.
In accepting the flag, Victor Lemus, an immigrant to America, said, “We are honored to receive this flag, and thank Congressman Fitzpatrick for providing this symbol of the United States to our company.”
