HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE U.S. FLAG!
For the 24th consecutive year, Catholic Life Insurance hosted its annual old fashioned flag raising ceremony to celebrate Flag Day. The event took place on Monday, June 13th in honor of the 239th anniversary of the American Flag. Approximately 150 people gathered to observe the Flag Raising and enjoy refreshments.
Our event began in the evening with a Mass on the grounds, officiated by Father Larry Christian, followed by the flag raising ceremony and a picnic social. There was a brass band playing patriotic music, free commemorative t-shirts for the attendees, a balloon artist clown, and face painters. As well, our Flag Day Poster Contest winners and Flag Day Patch Design Contest winner were given special recognition during the ceremony.
