Thanks for support of Flag Day tribute

Editor:

A big thank you to all for your support and participation in our second annual Flag Day Tribute at Payson’s Green Valley Park! The program was a fitting tribute to our flag and for what it represents.

Having the Flag Day Tribute nestled between Memorial Day and Independence Day is an appropriate place not only to pay tribute and honor the occasion, but to remember all of those brave American patriots who paid a great price for us to display the flag — the living symbol of our nation and the embodiment of everything that our forefathers intended as they crafted our republic.

Thanks to everyone who made it happen and to those who attended.

Remember to mark your calendars and plan to attend our annual Independence Day program at Payson’s Green Valley Park Veterans Memorial on Thursday 4 July at 8 a.m. Begin celebrating Independence Day with a patriotic flag raising ceremony followed by a reading of the Declaration of Independence and seminar to follow. Plan to be there!

Bill Sahno, Col., USMC (Ret), Payson Patriotic Events Committee
