Elks To Hold Flag Day Ceremony

The Oskaloosa Elks will hold its annual Flag Day Ceremony on Thursday, June 15, 2017, at 7 p.m. at the Oskaloosa Elks Lodge located on 2nd Avenue East in Oskaloosa.
The annual Flag Day Ceremony celebrates the history of the American flag. Oskaloosa Boy Scouts Troop 71 will present the flags that have flown over our great country while a history of the flags is presented. The public is invited to attend this interesting program. Light refreshments will be served afterwards.

In 1907, the idea of recognizing June 14 as Flag Day was presented at the Elks Grand Lodge Convention. In 1911, the Elks Grand Lodge added a requirement that all Elks Lodges to hold a Flag Day Ceremony on or near Flag Day each year. The Oskaloosa Elks Lodge invites the public to join us for this ceremony at 7 p.m. on June 15.
