Published DateMEREDITH — On Tuesday, June 4 at 4 p.m. the Meredith Public Library will host a ''You're a Grand Old Flag'' program presented by Walt and Shirley Stockwell of Gilford.
From the early days of our country, flags have been a symbol, a rallying point, and a source of pride and patriotism. This program presents a history of the evolution of the United States Flag. From Betsy Ross and before, to 9/11/01.
Walt Stockwell is a long term vexillophile (lover of flags), and has over 100 of them in his collection. This presentation typically uses 20 or more of these full size replicas to demonstrate this history. It is also a colorful and entertaining time line. The 45 minute presentation will be followed by a question and answer period.
This program is free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Friends of the Meredith Library. Refreshments will be served.
