In honor of National Flag Day today, members of the Col. James Wood II Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) presented a certificate to the City of Winchester to recognize the flag display at the Piccadilly Street and National Avenue intersection (photo attached).

“It is a great honor for me to see a display such as this that honors our country, the state, the City of Winchester, and all patriotic Winchester,” stated SAR Chapter President, Dale Corey, at the certificate presentation ceremony. “We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

The City is very honored to have been recognized for the patriotic design and maintenance of the roundabout. “Not everyone displays the flag properly, and if you get one of these certificates from us, it means we’ve been keeping an eye on you and you’ve done very well,” stated SAR member and Co-chair of the Flag Awards Committee, Father Raleigh Watson.
