After being shut down for over a year due to Covid, we finally were able to march in a parade again. We marched in the Flag Day Parade in Fairfield Wa. The longest running Flag Day Parade in America. Both the SAR & DAR were well represented in the parade.

For the 2021 Inauguration two 13 star flags will flank the 50 star flag. There will be 191,500 flags of varying size flown that day at the capitol including all state and territory flags.. Also there will be 56 pillars of light for those who can not attend. Originally Inauguration day was on Mar 4 to coincide with the approval of the Constitutions in 1789, but was moved to Jan 20, 1933 because March weather was too unpredictable. The first Inauguration was held in New York City and the second in Philadelphia before finally occurring in Washington City in 1801 later named Washington D.C. Inauguration means "beginning".

MEMORIAL DAY EVENTS 1
Despatch from the Eastern Regiment, 24th instant:
From: Color Guard Vice Commander

Compatriots,
As this weekend begins I set up a booth in the woods next to the Civil War Reenactors event in Cheney Wa. There will be 200-300 Civil War soldiers with over a dozen cannons staging several battles Saturday & Sunday. I figured it would be a good place to get a few new members. Several schools bused high school kids studying history for a field trip today. Here are pictures with the Cheney High School Students. They loved the living history exhibit. I have a busy weekend scheduled, something different each day. I will send more pictures of each event.

For Stan Wills, a desire to share the history of America with other people led to ownership of the Spokane Flag Museum – the only museum of its kind on the West Coast that houses a collection of more than 125 replica flags.
