Tucson 4th Degree Knights Teach Flag Folding Class

Our Worthy District Marshall AZ South, Drew Mansager, joined Sir Knights from the Father Anthony Rey Assembly # 3617 on 09 August 2017 to teach the 8th graders (some 60 students) from Saints Peter and Paul Catholic School how to properly fold the US Flag.
This was a hand-on training event and the students were very attentive and showed great respect for “Old Glory.”  Sir Knights first trained the students from Mrs. Patti Barrett's 8th grade class, then the students from Mrs. Marty Ratliff's 8th grade class.
Instruction included how to raise and lower the flag on the school’s 25 foot tall flagpole.  A little flag history and flag protocol were also imparted to the students.
The knights thank Principal (Mrs. Charlene Roll) for this great opportunity to practice PATRIOTISM!  A great way to start the school year.
