Flag Day, which is celebrated on June 14th each year, commemorates the United States’ adoption of the American flag in 1777.
Each year, the City of Rancho Santa Margarita (RSM) invites the community to pay a special tribute to the Star-Spangled Banner during a captivating ceremony that is held in Central Park in front of the Bell Tower outside City Hall just before sunset on June 14.
The event is organized by Saddleback Valley American Legion Post 862 and participants include the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, RSM City leaders and individuals who serve or have served in the U.S. military.
According to Jim Clements of the Saddleback Valley American Legion Post 862, who has also served 20 years in the U.S. Navy and is a Boy Scout troop leader, “this event presents a teachable moment for young adults and children who may be experiencing the national election process for the first time. It’s a way to connect with them as parents, grandparents and mentors and discuss unifying shared values as Americans.”
