Tuesday, June 14, 2016:  Flag Day at Woodland Good Samaritan in Brainerd.  Flags and patriotic music were the order of the day. 
A color guard from the Brainerd American Legion, the Brainerd Veterans of Foreign Wars,
and Crow Wing County Chapter of the Disabled American Veterans was there for the ceremony.
Minnesota State Senator Carrie Ruud (R) of Aitkin told of her family's participation in our nation's military and how important it is to protect our country.
Then President Abraham Lincoln, or his double Bill Erickson, read the Gettysburg Address. 
The Woodland Chorus sang patriotic songs to the delight of the several hundred in attendance.
They sang well with great feeling.
The Brainerd Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary was represented there too.
Then a local musician, appropriately dressed, was on hand to entertain.  It all went very well. 

Quote of the day:    Nicely done.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
