Flag Day Ceremony
Annually, on June 14th, we honor our flag, reflect on the true meaning of Flag Day and consider what it represents to our nation. This community event is a collaboration among the West Barnstable Fire Department, Meetinghouse Farm, and the West Barnstable Civic Association. We are grateful to Chief Maruca, Judy Desrochers, Steve Wallace who has been the warden of the Flag Pole at the Village Green for many years, our Town Councilor Kris Clark, trumpeter Paul Shoemaker who plays taps, Officers from the Sheriff’s Department Honor Guard, and many people who have helped organize this event. Everyone is encouraged to bring worn American flags for proper retirement. The West Barnstable Fire Department will also accept worn flags in advance if people are unable to attend the ceremony.
