Event Type: Public Programs
Location: William M. Allen Theater
Members of Skyway Post 9430 of the Veterans of Foreign Wars honor the Nation’s birthday with a salute to the American flag—all 27 versions that have officially represented the United States over the years. From the first 13-star flag authorized by Congress in 1777 to today’s 50-star flag, the presentation of each iteration is accompanied with the story of its symbolism in this moving and educational program for all ages. The program will be repeated several times.
