Celebrate Flag Day at 21 Acres June 14th

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

Flag Day is an important part of American History, although it is often overshadowed by Independence Day. June 14th commemorates the day Congress passed the First Flag Act, which adopted the stars and stripes as our national flag in 1777, and in 1949, President Harry Truman signed an act of Congress designating the day as National Flag Day.

There will be a short reading and reflection; anyone who wishes to share a story of their service, or what the flag means to them, will be invited to do so. Refreshments will be served on the terrace.

21 Acres inspires action to solve climate challenges by learning as a community to grow, eat and live sustainably. The campus, open Tuesdays through Saturdays, is located at 13701 NE 171st Street in Woodinville.
