Flag Day

I have been absent on leave to care for my parents for the past few days.

Last Sunday was Flag Day. Part of the bylaws for the Elks’ Club is that they will have an annual ceremony recognizing Flag Day. The Elks’ Club is the sponsor for B’s Boy Scout Troop and so they always ask that the troop participate in their ceremony.

A history of the American flag is read as each flag is presented.


After the inside program was complete, a flag retirement took place outside.


It was blazing hot but the ceremony was a good one and the boys enjoyed the hamburgers and hot dogs they were offered afterward.

Patriotism is a worthwhile value to teach and learn and practice.
