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, VFW chapters, Scouts, and other patriots.
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.
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
