CITY OF KATY – (Covering Katy News) – Jonathan D. Rozier Post 164 of The American Legion and the Katy Elks Lodge 2628 will conduct flag ceremonies at the Elks Lodge beginning at 7 p.m., Thursday, June 14.

The Elks will lead off with a Flag Day ceremony indoors at 1050 Katy Fort Bend Road.  It will include a display of flags and a recitation of their individual roles at certain points in U.S. history.

After the Elks ceremony and behind the lodge building, Post 164 will lead an outdoor flag retirement ceremony with the burning of faded flags collected from the public.  The dignified disposal of unserviceable flags in barrels is overseen by fire department representatives.
