CURRENTLY SCHEDULED "BUILD THE FLAG" PRESENTATIONS
None

Please remember you DO NOT have to have a Colonial Uniform to participate in Building the Flag. All Sojourners are welcome to join us in this, the Chapters most enjoyable event outside the meetings.

-------------------------------

Other "Build of the Flag" Presentations will be promulgated Via E-mail and Phone Calls.

Flag Building Presentations:

For the edification of those Brothers and Site Visitors not familiar with the Building of the Flag, the basic team usually consists of a minimum of four Sojourners, usually in Authentic Colonial Military Uniforms or Field attire.

A NARRATOR, presents the history of the United States flag from Colonial days to the present 50 star configuration. As the Narrator makes the presentation, the FLAG BUILDERS, construct the flag on a large plywood background by attaching the various stripes and stars to the background material. The fourth Brother, the ORATOR, makes several presentations, he describes the three governmental institutions, Executive, Legislative and Judicial, represented by the three sides of a folded flag, and as the finale to the building of the flag another Brother delivers the "Flag Speaks" lecture.

All in all a very impressive and well received program.

We can always use more Brother Sojourners to participate in this program. We travel frequently and extensively throughout the state to make the presentations.

Currently about 9 Brothers are regular participants. Please consider volunteering to join in this, our most requested and popular program which promotes the National Sojourners and particularly our Chapter. There is no requirement to be in Colonial Uniform attire. Regular Suit and/or sports jacket, or your old uniform, if it still fits!, is perfectly satisfactory.

Also no preliminary training or study is necessary, all texts and required training is "On the Job".
