Flag Day, June 14th marks the anniversary of the adoption by Congress in 1777 of the Stars and Stripes as emblem of the nation. Celebrations of the flag began in local communities throughout the country during the nineteenth century, largely for the purpose of educating children in history. We strive to continue that tradition by involving local elementary school choirs, orchestras and individual children reciting historical facts about the flag.
