Flag Day to be honored Tuesday

Fairfield Elks will honor Flag Day Tuesday with the assistance of local Boy and Girl Scout troops.

The ceremony will occur in Central Park immediately following the Greater Jefferson County Fair parade, which starts at 6:30 p.m.

The public is invited to attend to celebrate the occasion as Past Exalted Ruler Gregg Morton will walk the crowd through the history of all the flags in American history from colonial times to the present day.

Flag Day is celebrated nationally on June 14, commemorating the adoption of the flag of the United States on June 14, 1777, by resolution of the Second Continental Congress.
