Americanism Center Museums Open on June 14!
The Americanism Center Museums will be open Wednesday, June 14, 2023 from 9:00-4:00. In addition to our three museum rooms including a military museum, early history of Waubeka, and Bernard J. Cigrand, the "I Am Not Invisible" awareness campaign banners shared with us by the Wisconsin Veterans Museum and the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs will be on display. If you did not have a chance to visit on Sunday, or you just want another look, we look forward to seeing you on Wednesday!
Our mission is to carry on the tradition of the first Flag Day celebration. Our goal is to teach Americanism and the lessons of our great Flag and country by enlisting the help of 4H groups, the American Legion, VFW chapters, Scouts, and other patriots.
FLAG DAY CELEBRATION 2023!
The National Flag Day Foundation would like to share sincere thanks to everybody that made our 2023 celebration on June 11, 2023 a success! We could not have done it without the support of volunteers and community members like you. We look forward to seeing you next year!

The “Stars and Stripes” was designated the national symbol of the United States of America by congress on June 14, 1777-the fifth item on that day's agenda. It was resolved in the Journal of the Continental Congress “that the flag of the thirteen United States be thirteen stripes alternate red and white: that the Union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.” In 1885, a school teacher named Bernard J. Cigrand encouraged his students to reflect on the real meaning and majesty of this symbol.
