Celebrate the founding of our nation in a patriotic, joyous ceremony with community members of all ages. Major Patrick Hopple, a member of the Judge Advocate General’s Corps, US Army Reserve, and a 1999 graduate of Glen Lake Schools, will be the featured speaker. His presentation is titled Liberty and Service. The flag will be raised by members of the Glen Lake Fire Department. A crowd favorite is the singalong of well-loved and familiar patriotic songs that closes the program.
The Flag Raising Ceremony begins at 10 am, July 4th, at the Old Settlers Picnic Grounds, located on the south eastern shore of Glen Lake near the corner of Dunn’s Farm Rd. (CR 675) and Burdickville Rd (CR 616). Please bring your own lawn chairs. Event sponsored by Glen Lake Woman’s Club.
