Flags For Kids

Each year the West Linn Lions Club sponsors a flag day for the West Linn Elementary Schools so children can gain insight into what our American Flag means. The West Linn Lions Club present small flags with wooden stands to up to 300 1st and/or 2nd graders at Bolton, Cedar Oak and Sunset Elementary Schools.  The Riverview Lions Club also present to the three other  West Linn Elementary Schools (Stafford, Willamette and Trillium).

Each Child receives an small American Flag of their own to take home with them and leans the meaning of the pledge of allegiance.  The intent of the presentation is to teach children facts and History about the American Flag and patriotism However, the display also has a collection of flags representing various countries around the world that have Lions Clubs which  teaches children to have respect for other countries and flags.
