Lufkin will be celebrating National Flag Day June 14th in the atrium of City Hall.

 

National Flag Day calls us together for a moment of unity in a celebration of history and heritage, as we honor not just our flag, but the freedom and the nation it represents.

Many people see our flag just as the national banner of the Unites States, but it's more than that. It represents the men and women that have put their lives on the line for our country. It represents the victim's of 9-11, and those recently devastated by floods and tornadoes. So come show pride in your country, and join us June 14th at Lufkin City Hall!

The celebration starts at 5:30pm, and at 6:00 sharp, Lufkin citizens will join Americans across the country in the saying of the Pledge Of Allegiance, as part of the national Pause for the Pledge. Music will be provided by the quartet, Narrow Road and Lufkin High band director Scott Williams. Mayor Jack Gorden will be in attendance, along with Rev. Earl Whitaker from Church of the Living God. Members of the VFW Post.1836 will be posting the colors, and will be handing out miniature flags to those that attend the ceremony.
