LACEY INVITES COMMUNITY TO DEDICATION CERMONY OF THE LACEY SENIOR CENTER FLAGPOLE
LACEY, WA, September 11, 2014: The City of Lacey and Senior Services for South Sound welcome the public to attend the dedication of a recently donated flagpole at the Lacey Senior Center on Thursday, September 18, 2014. The dedication will take place at 10:45 a.m. and will last approximately one hour. The Lacey Senior Center is located at 6757 Pacific Avenue SE within Woodland Creek Community Park in Lacey.
Lacey Senior Center came to receive the flagpole from the Lacey Sunrise Lions Club, who was originally awarded the flagpole from the Woodmen of the World. Funds for the installation of the flagpole, lighting, and commemorative plaque have also been donated by an individual member of the Lacey Sunrise Lions Club.
Woodmen of the World, one of the largest distributors of U.S. flags, is a non-profit group that has donated and presented more than two million American flags to worthy non-profit and community organizations. The group celebrates patriotism and honors the American flag throughout the year.
The American Legion saxophone quartet, directed by Diana Appler, will play patriotic music throughout the ceremony. Scouts from Boy Scout Troop 222 will serve as the Color Guard.
The Lacey Senior Center is owned by the City of Lacey and managed by Senior Services for South Sound. Many senior citizens who patronize the center for programs, fitness classes, and meals have served in the military, and asked for a flagpole. Citizens in our community rallied to provide one.
