Jun 10, 2024

The Rochester Elks Lodge is hosting its annual Flag Day Services on Friday, June 14th, 2024, at 7:00 pm in the Lodge Hall at 295 Columbus Avenue, Rochester, NH.

Flag Day, officially established in 1916 and nationally observed since 1949, is a significant event for the Elks, the only fraternal organization that mandates its observance.

The event will be led by Past Exalted Ruler Peter Ducharme, with the Rochester Emblem Club #40 presenting the Flags. Mayor Paul Callaghan will be the guest speaker.

Complimentary light refreshments will follow the ceremony. Families, especially those with school-aged children, are encouraged to attend to learn about the history of the American Flag.

The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, a major patriotic and charitable organization, has donated over $14 billion since its inception 156 years ago. The Elks have a strong presence in New Hampshire and nationwide, with 13 Lodges in New Hampshire and over 1,800 Lodges across the country.
