Entertainment will include “The Legacy Girls,” a trio of women who perform songs from the 1950s and 1960s.

Guests are encouraged to bring their worn or torn American flags to the event, where a flag retirement box will be available. The collected flags will be taken to the American Legion for proper retirement.
