Dear C.A.R. Members and Families Flag Day, June 14, is our next event. We will be joining theGermantown Fire Department on Farmington in the heart of Germantown, to help them lower their flag at sunset. Please join us at 6:00 in front of the fire department where we will learn about flag etiquette and officially retire the flag for the day. Following that, we will have a tour of the fire department and then will go to the park for an ice cream social, in red, white and blue, of course. Family members are most welcome to join us and I hope all will get in the spirit by wearing their "colors" as we celebrate and honor our nation's flag and all it stands for. Please let me know how many will be joining us from your family so that we have plenty of ice cream for everybody!! Our next activity will be in the fall so be looking for more information in September or October. Sue Oehmen 756-5853 Hermitage DAR
