ALL are invited to our Flag Raising Ceremony on Veterans Day, November 11th, after the 8AM Mass at OMC!
We will have a USMC Honor Guard and a contingent from the Patriot Guard on hand to assist with the first raising of the flag.
We will broadcast the National Anthem as well as other military and patriotic songs over our outdoor sound system.
We hope that Channel 8 CBS will interview Kiefer and may carry it live on TV!
Update on the OMC Flagpole project:
- This is an Eagle Scout project organized by 17yr old OMC parishioner Kiefer Black.
- Kiefer’s family, fellow scouts and neighbors assisted by providing labor.
- Funds for this project were donated by the Mystical Rose Guild and other parishioners.
- All excess funds will be placed in a “Flagpole maintenance fund” for replacement flags and hardware under the stewardship of the OMC Knights of Columbus.
- The Knights will lower the flag during inclement weather as necessary.
- Part of the external LED low voltage lights system that we recently installed will illuminate this flag from sunset to sunrise every day.
