OAKHURST — Continuing a tradition began in 2009, Oakhurst Lutheran Church will hold a celebration in honor of Flag Day on Thursday, June 14.
As usual, the touching event will take place in the memorial garden at the church, with a ceremony at the veterans’ monument, starting with dinner at 6 p.m. This year’s inspirational speaker will be Ed Bates.
Dinner and dessert includes a pulled pork sandwich, chips, soda and ice cream, with a suggested donation of $15 for the Semper Fi fundraiser. The celebration continues at the flagpole and memorial at 7 p.m.
Retirement of old flags will also be part of the ceremony, so if you have a flag in need of proper disposal bring it to the church office. Free flags will be provided for the children.
