Why Attend: One of the most important elements of the mission statement of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks is “to quicken the spirit of American patriotism.” We are a distinctly patriotic organization, and what better way to show our patriotism than to fly and honor our flag on Sunday, June 14, Flag Day. As required by our laws, every lodge has a duty to hold a Flag Day Service. At our service you will see parades of US flags and hear the history of the flag described. Come on out and be a participant, either in the audience or in the performance. When we salute our flag we are effectively saluting the men and women who have given our country the gift of military service. A thank you to our veterans for their service is in order on Flag Day and every day. Always be mindful of our motto: “So long as there are veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget them.”
Did you know: There have been twenty-seven official versions of the flag so far; stars have been added to it as states have entered the Union.
