Clifton Forge, VA (May 11, 2018) - The Stars and Stripes Celebration Committee of Clifton Forge Main Street, Inc. is excited to announce the first of this year’s 242nd Nation’s Birthday events.

"We will kick off our patriotic celebration with a Flag Day Ceremony, Thursday, June 14th, at 5:30 PM, at the Award-Winning Masonic Amphitheatre. Members of Girl Scout Troop #536 of Clifton Forge will hand out small American Flags to everyone who attends," a Main Street official noted.

The ceremony will also include a presentation by Boy Scout Troop #2 of Clifton Forge featuring some of the historic flags of our nation, including a brief explanation of their origin.

In addition there will be patriotic music sung by Dale Meuterspaugh and Alan Dale Craft as well as flag presentations by members of the Clifton Forge VFW Post #4299. The ceremony will also honor the 243rd birthday of the U.S. Army. A fundraiser picnic supper will be available on the grounds afterwards, and birthday cakes in honor of “Old Glory” and the U.S. Army will be served. Everyone is invited to this very special occasion. Lisa Jonas, Office manager of Clifton Forge Main Street, especially encourages you to bring children to this event. “This is a fun opportunity for them to be reminded of the history and the importance of our nation’s flag.”
