Children from Lilliput Learning Center and Constantine Village employees posted 50 flags for Flag Day on Thursday (June 14) at Shelby Park in Constantine.
Police Chief Jim Bedell distributed the flags and told children about the importance of the American flag and what it symbolized. Children recited the Pledge of Allegiance and were each given a small flag, a red, white and blue cookie, and treat bags with patriotic items in them by DDA director, Diana Lammott.
“I like Flag Day, and I like cookies,” Zach Stears said after the event.
