Veterans’ Craft Center Celebrates Flag Day

 
WINCHESTER, CA – Help Hospitalized Veterans’ Community Based Arts & Crafts Center in Grand Junction will celebrate Flag Day next Friday, June 12, by hosting a barbecue and distributing flag-related crafts. Activities will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Center, located at 1670 North Avenue in Grand Junction.

In addition to traditional picnic fare including hot dogs, hamburgers, chips and soda, the Craft Center will give away 100 Flag Banner kits. Local veterans are invited to attend, as well as the general public. Anyone interested may bring a dish to pass, potluck style, although this is optional.

Since 1971, national nonprofit organization Help Hospitalized Veterans has provided more than 29 million arts and crafts kits to United States veterans and active duty servicemen and women. At the local Craft Center, area veterans may pick up free therapeutic arts and crafts materials and can also work on projects with other veterans. They can also bring the crafts home to work on independently. The Center has recently extended its hours and is now open from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information about the Flag Day celebration, contact Lisa Smith, Craft Care Specialist at: (970) 424-0499.

Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the United States flag, which occurred on June 14, 1777. National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress in 1949.
