Jacksonville Lodge held its Flag Day ceremony June 11 for 75 attendees, including lodge officers, members, family, armed forces members, veterans, police officers and representatives from Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.). Lodge members provided “About Our Flag” brochures, “Honor Our Flag” decals and flag lapel pins. Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Color Guard performed, led by Lt. Elizabeth Kenny; St. Johns County Sheriff Deputy Rust Burns; and Bob Morgan, Flag Day chair. Afterward, there was a fireside burning of 52 unserviceable flags, and the lodge hosted a buffet for all in attendance.
