The Cumberland County Elks Lodge 2751 has organized a ceremony to honor our American flag on June 14, in conjunction with National Flag Day. A short program will take place on the courthouse lawn starting at noon. Here are some of the events:

The Elks will present the history of our flag as the Cumberland County Young Marines parade the actual historical flags.

A demonstration will be given on how to properly fold the flag.

The VFW Armory Guard will give a 21-gun salute.

Both city and county mayors will give short comments.

All present will give Pledge of Allegiance.

This will be an excellent time to show your respect for the American flag. It is an ideal time to expose your children to the history of how and why the flag obtained its present appearance.

Please join the Elks, Young Marines, and the VFW for a short, special occasion to pay honor to Old Glory.
