SIDNEY — Sunday, June 14, is Flag Day.

I personally did not know much about the origins of Flag Day so I turned to Wikipedia for information. Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States on June 14, 1777, by resolution of the Second Continental Congress. In 1916 President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day.

Flag Day is not an official Federal Holiday. The VFW Post 4239 is proud to offer Flag Education for kids, Federal Flag Code and Parade Flag Etiquette for any schools or youth groups that are interested. We also have available National Anthem/Pledge of Allegiance Book Marks that can ordered.

The VFW Auxiliary supports our veterans, our country and our flag. Please join us and fly your Flag proudly for everyone to see on Flag Day and 4th of July.

For more information of Auxiliary Education programs, contact me at 937-658-4659.
