Flag Day Celebration This Evening In Lufkin

Main Street Lufkin will celebrate National Flag Day today at City Hall.

The 31st Annual Flag Day Celebration will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the atrium of Lufkin City Hall. Promptly at 6:00 p.m. Lufkin’s patriotic citizens will join Americans across the nation, as we recite the Pledge of Allegiance as part of the national Pause for the Pledge.

Music this year will be provided by the quartet, Narrow Road, and Scott Williams, band director at Lufkin High School. Other participants include Mayor Jack Gorden and the Rev. Earl Whitaker from Church of the Living God. Posting of the colors will be by members of the VFW Post.1836. Members of the VFW will also be on hand to distribute miniature flags to those attending the ceremony.

From the colorful story about Betsy Ross to the unforgettable picture of a handful of Marines hoisting the stars and stripes at Iwo Jima, the American flag has held a special significance beyond its status as a national banner.  In more recent years we’ve seen our flag flying proudly in the aftermath of 9-11 and through the devastating storms and floods of this year. 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.  Come join us as we recognize the courage of a young nation and the flag that proclaimed it!

Everyone in the community is encouraged to come out and join us as we celebrate Flag Day. Refreshments will be served following the ceremony.   See you there!
