History of the U.S. Flag at Next Meeting

The Boonville Historical Club invites the public to a presentation about the history of the American flag on Monday evening, February 1. The program is in keeping with the club’s current theme, “Freedom is Not Free.”

Retired Air Force Lt. Col. Cathy Duncan, a Remsen area resident, and a member of the Boonville Elks Club, will present the program. Duncan has had a longtime interest in our country’s flag. She will display her flag collection, which consists of the original version up to the present time, and discuss the changes the flag has undergone. Her presentation begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Episcopal Church fellowship hall, Ford Street, Boonville. It’s actually behind the church, which faces Schuyler Street. Light refreshments will follow.

Prior to the public program, historical club members will hold a brief business session, beginning at 6:45 p.m.

For more information, call Judy at 942-4173 or Joyce at 942-4835. You can also send email to boonvillehistoricalclub@gmail.com
