ABQ Elks Lodge 461 Hosted a Flag Day Ceremony on June 17th

Flag Day at Albuquerque Elks Lodge #461 on June 17th.
Lodge #461 presented a Flag Day presentation starting with a history of the Flag as the years passed after our founding.
The Lodge had members and friends bring in old flags for proper disposal. Members of the Neptune Society, a cremation service, attended the event. They accepted our old flags to be placed with veterans who had passed and are to be cremated.
To finish the event a demonstration of the proper folding of our flag was done by several Lodge members.
Honored guests were the members of our Local Fire Department, who unfortunately had to leave due to a call.
Thank you to all members who did a fantastic job of celebrating the history of our Flag!
