HONORING OLD GLORY

-A A +A
By The Staff

Sunday was Flag Day and a ceremony was held at Ashley Pond in celebration of the event. Rep. Jeannette Wallace read the governor’s proclamation and Council Vice Chair Mike Wismer read the county’s. There was a parade of flags from our past (such as the Grand Union flag to the upper left) and lessons on flag history. The event was sponsored by the Order of Elks 2083, the Military Order of the World Wars, the Veterans of Foreign Wars and Ladies Auxiliary and the Los Alamos Republican Women. Robert Clanton was master of ceremonies, Randy King led the prayer, Richard Kieltyka gave the flag history, Raymond Smith read the response and Bob Villa explained flag etiquette. Ashley Cordell led the singing.
