June 15, 2022 - VFW Post 8904 and Auxiliary celebrated Flag Day June 14, 2022, at the Senior Nutrition Site in Center.

Larry Hume, Post Quartermaster, led the program and Richard Lundie performed the ceremony of hoisting the flag.

Hume shared Flag Day is celebrated on June 14 every year and the inception of the United States Army is also recognized. This year it celebrates its 247th birthday.

Flag Day was officially established by Presidential Proclamation in 1916 by President Woodrow Wilson.

Following the raising of the flags, the Pledge of Allegiance was then recited by all present.

Hume reminded everyone the current flag pole, which was donated by the Post and Auxiliary with a dedication, was placed in memory of Pam White.

White was the executive director of Shelby County Outreach Ministries, of which the Senior Nutrition Site operates under the umbrella. She held the position from 1995 until her passing in 2014.
