Girl Scout Troop 288 acted as flag bearers during the annual Elks Lodge Flag Day ceremony at the Las Vegas recreation center Friday.
Barbara Venturi, Exalted Ruler Elks Lodge 408, said members are very patriotic and have been observing the day since its inception.
“The flag is first in our hearts as loyal Americans and close to our alter as loyal Elks. So many things we do revolve around our flag and our country. Charity, justice, brotherly love and fidelity are out guiding principals of our order,” Venturi said.
