Sunday, June 11, 2011 the Thousand Oaks Elks Lodge #2477 conducted a Flag Day Ceremony and Flag Retirement Ceremony with 50 members and guests present. A history of our Flag was read and each one was on display from the very first until today including the an MIA Flag. Brownie Taylor Spira sang the National Anthem.
We then adjourned outside and Exalted ruler retired the first Flag. The Scouts were then encouraged to each retire a Flag.
An ice cream and cookie social was provided and the scouts loved it.
