Celebration, Event

Over the Top at the Wagner

The City of Dearborn is celebrating its 90th birthday this year, and what better way to celebrate than a party with proceeds benefitting the Dearborn Historical Museum. Our theme – Let’s party like it’s 1929 – sets the mood  for the event which includes a pre-dinner reception for Sponsors and Benefactors at the Museum’s recently renovated Commandant’s Quarters and a strolling dinner, music and entertainment on the roof top of the beautifully renovated Wagner Hotel. Reservations for the Benefactor and Patron levels are now available for purchase at the Museum and online below.

Celebration, Ceremony, Flag Day

A Grand Old Flag

Tomorrow is June 14th: Flag Day. Officially established in 1916 by President Woodrow Wilson, this is the date that the Second Continental Congress adopted the flag of the United States in 1777. This year will mark the 236th anniversary of the adoption of the flag of the United States of America.

Flag day isn’t a federal holiday and is only a state holiday in Pennsylvania, but it is celebrated by families and organizations throughout the United States. Parades aren’t uncommon on this day, but much more common are flag ceremonies which not only celebrate our nation’s flag but also those who have served under it. This is because June 14th is not just the day our flag was ratified, but also the day in 1775 that the Congress adopted the American Continental Army.

FlagDay001

The City of Dearborn commemorates this day with a ceremony to retire old and tattered flags. The ceremony keeps with the American Legions rules for the disposal of flags.
Any and all are welcome to attend the ceremony June 14th, at Ford Field park at 7:00pm. People may drop off their flags starting at 6:30pm. This ceremony is preformed in conjunction with the Dearborn Allied War Veterans Council.

Come and help us commemorate Flag Day not only as a national tradition but a local one as well.
