Enterprise Elk’s Lodge #1829 will be celebrating Flag Day on Tuesday, June 14, 2022 at the Wallowa County Courthouse Square at 6:30 pm. The organizing committee invites Veterans groups, civic organizations, youth groups and the public to attend and celebrate Flag Day.
Inspired by over three decades of state and local celebrations, Flag Day - the anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777 - was officially established by the Proclamation of President Woodrow Wilson on May 30, 1916. While Flag Day was celebrated in various communities for years after Wilson's proclamation, it was not until August 3, 1949 that President Truman signed an Act of Congress designating June 14 of each year as National Flag Day.
Our flag, also called the “Stars and Stripes,” is the official National symbol of the United States of America. Its design was authorized by the Continental Congress on Saturday, June 14, 1777. Flag Day event is a celebration of our national flag and everything it represents. It’s also a time to remember and honor military men and women who defend our flag and our country.
Also, if you have a flag to retire, bring it to the ceremony and it will be done in a proper, dignified manner at a later date by the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
