Houma Elks Lodge to Hold Annual Flag Day Ceremony June 11

The Houma Elks Lodge #1193 will hold their annual Flag Day Ceremony on Saturday, June 11, 2022, at the WoodmenLife Chapter 308 facility at 309 South Hollywood Road, Houma, LA 70360. The public is invited to attend. 

President Woodrow Wilson's June 14, 1916 proclamation established Flag Day, but it was not observed nationally until Elks member, President Harry Truman, signed an act of Congress in 1949. The Houma Elks perform their Flag Day Ceremony each year along with other lodges throughout the United States, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Panama Canal.
