Flag Day ceremony held at Creston Elk's Lodge

About 100 people attended a Flag Day ceremony held Saturday evening at Creston Elk's Lodge #605. The ceremony included a gun salute, playing of "Taps" and keynote speech from Dave Neeley.

Flag Day is celebrated each year to commemorate the adoption of the flag of the United States — which happened on June 14, 1777, by resolution from the Second Continental Congress. The day also promotes patriotism, respect for the flag and love of country.
