Our Flag Day Ceremony was conducted by the Lodge Officers and our own Paldani Chapter - Order of the Arrow Boy Scouts. The Scouts then conducted a Flag Retirement Ceremony on the outside grounds for Lodge members and guests from the community. Refreshments followed. Patriotism has characterized the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the United States of America since the early days of the organization. Allegiance to the flag of our country is a requirement of every member.
