Flag Day celebration, June 14

The Oakhurst Lutheran Men’s Club will sponsor its annual Flag Day Celebration at 6 p.m., Saturday, Saturday, June 14 (Flag Day).

The celebration will begin with a free hot dog, chips and soda for all children under 12. A tri-tip sandwich, chips and soda will be available for adults for $7, with all profits going to the Mountain Area Caring Vets program.

The Flag Day program will be conducted at the Veterans Memorial and Flag pole, beginning at 7 p.m., and will include a brief history of Flag Day, the presidential proclamation, a guest speaker and patriotic songs. The Lions Club will furnish flags for all the children.

Newly added this year will be a Flag Retiring (burning) ceremony at the end of the festivities. Anyone who has a flag which is in a condition no longer appropriate for representing our nation can bring it for proper disposal.
