A weekend of celebration. Members of Elk Lodge 198 joined together to honor the flag.
The heartfelt ceremony gave the background of the flag and what it stands for. A pork roast and buffet give everyone a chance to talk about what the flag means to them.
"It's our country. It's symbolic of our country. It's who we are. It's what we defend. Why we're here. Why we're free. And the liberty in which we have," says Exalted Leader David Roberts.
