West Sacramento, CA (MPG) - The West Sacramento Moose lodge will hold a special End Of Summer program of Patriotism, Citizenship, Flag Waving and a great community and family Fun BBQ on Saturday 30 September – the last Saturday of the month.  West Sacramento Moose, members of “the Family Fraternity” cordially extend an invitation to all to attend and especially to participate in this community patriotic program of true AMERICANISM.

The Saturday program will commence at 12:15 with an assembly at the lodge flagpole for a ceremonial program about our American Flag, and will highlight uniformed Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts and Daisy’s as well as flag bearing color guards.  After a brief informational presentation they will raise a new American Flag and introduce the “Hygiene 4 Heroes” program.

The year ‘round program – “Hygiene 4 Heroes” collects toiletries and sundry items for veterans who arrive for regular medical appointments and are unexpectedly kept in the hospital for days at a time, without their miscellaneous shaving, washing and basic toiletry supplies.  Local scouts have been collecting donations to support this program and will make a presentation.

After a live 21-gun salute by the veteran’s Honor Squad, the playing of “TAPS” and recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance – the formal part of the day’s event concludes, and the games, activities and food begin.

This is a fundraising community program and will serve lunches of hot dog, hamburger, salads (several), chips and ETC for only $3. kids and $5. Adults.
