Central Square Gazebo



The Elizabeth G. Blake Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution invites you to help us celebrate Flag Day on Saturday, June 11, 2022.  We will be giving out American flags and American flag lapel pins.  You can learn how the flag of the United States of America should be flown and displayed — not only on Flag Day (June 14) — but every day.

Find us at the Bandstand in the Common in Central Square, Keene.  Chapter members will greet you from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.  Just look for the red, white, and blue.

We look forward to meeting you and presenting you with your very own American flag.

If you would like more information about this Flag Day event, please call Organizing Regent Nancy Howard at 802-365-1824, or email EGBlake.nhdar@gmail.com.

Through the DAR Genealogical Research System (www.dar.org/GRS), the public can access a free database of information amassed by the DAR about these patriots.
