Flag Day Ceremony

Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall and Museum

4141 Fifth Avenue

Pittsburgh, PA

            On Saturday, June 17, 2017, starting at 10:00 am, the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) will celebrate their 88th Flag Day Ceremony at the historic Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall and Museum in the Oakland area of Pittsburgh.  The management of Soldiers & Sailors donates the use of their magnificent facility for this purpose.  Without their support this wonderful event that recognizes the achievements of Pittsburgh area eighth graders could not take place.

 

The program is jointly sponsored by the DAR and the SAR.  The membership of both organizations is composed of lineal descendants of patriots who supported the cause of the American Revolution.  Both the DAR and the SAR are federally chartered, non-profit and politically non-partisan organizations.  They are dedicated to fostering patriotism, encouraging the study of American history, and celebrating and extending the various institutions of freedom in America.

 

The DAR and SAR develop programs to help citizens understand and better appreciate the value of American citizenship.  One of these programs is this Flag Day Program through which we honor our Flag and recognize outstanding eighth grade students in public and private Pittsburgh area schools for good citizenship and proficiency in history.  The SAR will present approximately 100 Good Citizenship Awards and the DAR will present the same number of awards for proficiency in history.  A total of approximately 200 students will be recognized.  In attendance will be Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald, student awardees, their parents, other family members and teachers.

 

The Color Guard will be provided by the North Allegheny High School AF JROTC.  A special Flag Day Proclamation will be presented by Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald and a short film on the history of our Nation’s Flag will be shown.
