Garden Day at the Star-Spangled Banner Flag House

Help the Star-Spangled Banner Flag House prepare for Flag Day! You’ll get to explore the flag house and museum, learn about the history of the flag that inspired our national anthem and try on costumes from the time period. Join us for a flag ceremony you won’t soon forget. We’ll also go to work on the garden. There will be something for everyone to do as we plant flowers, add mulch, and get the garden ready for the summer. All girls who participate in this fun, historical service project will receive a special patch and the satisfaction of creating a beautiful garden (and maybe even a piece of the garden to take home!)   *Bring a bagged lunch, we will provide drinks.
