Flag Day

June 14th is Flag Day for the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the United States of America.

The Elks prompted President Woodrow Wilson to recognize the Order's observance of Flag Day for its patriotic expression. But it was not until 1949 when President Harry Truman, himself a member of the Elks, made the proclamation that thereafter June 14 would be a day of national observance for the symbol of our country.

Mom and Dad are members of the BPOE in our town. She went owt to take piktures and to observe da ceremony.

We stayed home and helped Dad finish da deck.
