Today is Flag Day. Our little town has a special tradition that starts every year on Flag Day. It's called the 21 Day Salute to the Flag. Volunteers raise the flags every day starting on Flag Day and ending on Independence Day as 47 flags join the three permanently placed flags on the property to represent all 50 states.
At 7:30 each morning, volunteers raise all 47 flags of the salute and retire them at 5:30 p.m. This process takes about 15 minutes and at least six volunteers are involved. The first Flag Salute was conducted in 1987. Here I am helping get the flags out at City Hall.
