A program to celebrate Flag Day was held at the recent meeting of Ross Grange.
The flag was presented by Gordon Carlberg and Winston and Valerie Bartholomew. "I Pledge Allegiance" by Red Skelton was read by Mary Walker. What the stars, stripes and colors symbolize was given by Opal Sprague. Barb Holman told of her trip to Virginia where Francis Scott Key wrote the Star Spangled Banner. Patriotic songs were sung and a quiz on Presidents was enjoyed. Mrs. Holman was pianist for the evening.

The charter was draped in memory of Sylvia Holmquist. The committee to write a Resolution of Respect is Mrs. Sprague, Mrs. Walker and Doris Overend.
