Clifton Park Elks 47th Annual Flag Celebration
New York State Assemblywoman Mary Beth Walsh will be a keynote speaker at the Clifton Park Elks 47th Annual Flag Celebration on Friday, June 14, at 6:30 PM at the Lodge located at 695 MacElroy Road in Ballston Lake.
The event will honor our nation's colors and celebrate the history of the American Flag. The Order of Elks adopted the practice of celebrating Flag Day before in 1907. Since then, each Elks Lodge has been required to observe Flag Day annually. The United States Congress formally recognized June 14th as Flag Day in 1949 under President Harry Truman after the Elks had observed the practice many years.
Assemblywoman Walsh will join Clifton Park Supervisor Phil Barrett and other area public officials in recognizing Elks Scholarship recipients at the ceremony. The Clifton Park Chorus will also perform patriotic songs.
The event is open to the public.
