Flag Day Saturday June 14

speeches1938The Peace Pipe Chapter of the National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution, will host its 103rd Flagraising tomorrow at the top of Genesee Mountain. Speeches and ceremony begin at 11 a.m. and will be followed by a “bring-your-own” picnic lunch at the Genesee Shelter. The event is supported by the Sons of the American Revolution and the Fourth Texas Artillery, who will provide a rifle salute and cannon firing, as well as by Denver Mountain Parks staff. This historic event has occurred on June 14th every year since 1911, and has been a joint event since Mountain Parks began.

To get to Genesee Mountain, take I-70 (Exit 254) and continue to the top of the mountain. Bring a lunch and join us for a picnic following the event.
