Flag Ceremony June 29 in Parkdale
 
All military personnel and first responders are invited to a service of dedication and flag raising ceremony being held in their honor and in remembrance of those who have served in the past. The community is welcome to attend and show their support of the dedication shown by these individuals.
 
The program will be held Saturday, June 29 at 2 p.m. at Parkdale Community Church, 4910 Baseline Drive in Parkdale.
 
“The inspiration for installing and dedicating a flag to those who place their own safety, and in some cases their lives, in jeopardy in order to protect us and serve our country came from Larry and Jeri Rector,” said a press release. “They, along with Hal Dykstra, John Wright and Stanley DeHart have worked diligently on this project.”
 
Refreshments will be served following the program, giving the community the opportunity to visit with and thank these amazing people who serve them, continued the press release.
 
 
Provision for the flagpole and plaque was given by members of the Parkdale Community Church, many of whom served in the military or as first responders, or who had family members serve. The flagpole was given by Bud and Judy Lacey.
 
“As a church family, we are proud of all who serve in these capacities. It is with profound thankfulness to these individuals that we honor them in this way,” said the press release.
