Flag Day is an important part of American History, although it is often overshadowed by Independence Day. June 14th commemorates the day Congress passed the First Flag Act, which adopted the stars and stripes as our national flag in 1777, and in 1949, President Harry Truman signed an act of Congress designating the day as National Flag Day.
Please join us in recognizing and celebrating National Flag Day on Thursday, June 14th at 9:45 a.m. We’ll meet at the flag pole where members of the 21 Acres staff who are veterans, along with any community veterans who wish to join and help, will raise the flag. There will be a short reading and reflection; anyone who wishes to share a story of their service, or what the flag means to them, will be invited to do so. Refreshments will be served on the terrace.
