What: Flag Day Ceremony
Where: Fairfield Central Park
When: Tuesday, June 22 (Approx. 7:00PM following the Jefferson Co Fair Parade)
On June 14, 1777, the Second Continental Congress adopted the flag of the United States. Since 1907, the fraternal order of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks has celebrated the holiday. On Tuesday, June 22nd the Fairfield Elks Lodge #1192 will conduct their annual Flag Day Ceremony honoring the history of our flag following the Jefferson County Fair Parade and just prior to the community band concert in Central Park.
Flags have always been an important element in American History. From the first European explorers to today, flags have flown proudly across the U.S. and have represented values our country holds true; determination, heritage, freedom, vigilance, perseverance, justice, prosperity, peace, and patriotism.
A flag is much more than a piece of brightly colored fabric. A flag represents the pride of a country, symbolic of the struggle to earn its freedom. Million of people have sacrificed their lives for those freedoms. To honor them, the flag of our country and the principles for which it stands, the Fairfield Elks Lodge #1192 welcomes everyone to attend the Flag Day ceremony.
