It’s a festival to celebrate the freedoms we enjoy and will include activities and entertainment for all ages.
Attendees can also learn about the VFW Auxiliary and what it offers, including educational scholarships, community volunteering opportunities, and information about flag etiquette. Also, anyone who has an old flag that’s ready for proper disposal can leave it with Auxiliary members on Saturday.
