posted in: Local Lodge News | 0

On June 16, Louisville Elks Lodge #8 held their annual Flag Day Tribute. Lodge members were excited to welcome Kentucky State President Charlie Cunningham and First Lady Troi as special guests for the event.

As part of the tribute, the Louisville Lodge # 8 Honor Guard performed an inspiring Flag Folding demonstration and Lodge Veterans Chair Lora Forde directed the Flag Retirement. Charlie and Troi were honored to retired a Ky. State Flag while several lodge members honored our Allied Nation of Israel by retiring that nation’s flag with respect. All attendees were provided the opportunity to retire our nation’s Flag with dignity, and at the end of the day more than 50 American Flags were given the respect they deserve. Everyone who participated received a Flag for their car as a thank you for attending and while it was an extremely hot event, everyone endured the heat and had a wonderful time.
