Flag Day Celebration, Sunday, June 14, 2009

The American Legion and American Legion Auxilliary put together a Flag Day Celebration in the Atrium of City Hall in Lufkin.  The mayor and several others spoke briefly including yours truly, Fred Preston, who talked about just what the SAR's goal are, primarily to educate our children about the history of our country's struggle for freedom in the period of 1775 to 1783.  E. G. Ratliff read several poems about Old Glory, Hunter Hayes talked about what the flag stands for.  Veterans were asked to stand and tell their branch of service and the years they served.  Kelly Page sang the National Anthem and at 6 o'clock everyone said the pledge to the flag which was led by Neal Naranjo.
