Kudos to Elks Lodge for Flag Day event
I would like to commend Bill Batchelder and the rest of the members of the Bemidji Elks Lodge on the beautiful Flag Day ceremony held June 14. The program was excellent.
The essays on "Americanism" written and read by Riley Berg and Dax Maxwell were most impressive. St. Philip’s School and the city of Bemidji should be proud to have two state winners. Congratulations to the two young students. They truly represent our future leaders. In addition, thank you to Ralph Gracie Post 14 Honor Guard for their dignified disposal of our unserviceable flags. To those who missed the ceremony — mark your calendars for next year.
