Great time at the Dukes Country Potluck! Thank you, David and Lori! Great People, good food and

outstanding entertainment performed by John Pemberton. I think we might have even turned our

resident Rock enthusiast Skip Severance to a Country Music fan.

A little news from Gary and Jan Pflepsen. They are in New Orleans, eating Gumbo and dancing in the

streets, will expect a report when they get back.

Linda and Chuck Laningham are still on trip RV trip, have been to Colorado, Kansas, Tennessee, Georgia,

through Louisiana to Texas and then will be on their way home. Unfortunately, they had some bad luck

after leaving Georgia, the highway workers were mowing the median and a rock flew up and broke the

windshield on Linda’s side. They are going to try and get it fixed in Texas otherwise they Chuck will put

plastic on it and drive it back home.

Glenn and Lorraine sent us a little update on their beautiful new red car, all 3,487 lbs. of her. As

reported last month, her birthdate was March 7, 2017 born in Bowling Green, KY and delivered on

March 30, 2017 in Dinuba. She has been named Cherise and so far, has been a very good girl.

They also mentioned that they went on Panama Canal Cruise with some of the other Corvette couples.

They left on April 17 and returned on May 4 th , had a fun trip but they’re glad to be home.

Ruthie Danielsen is still at Rehab, still very weak; some days are better than others. At the time of our

General Meeting she was being treated for dehydration and is back on an IV drip to replenish her fluids.

Please keep those cards, calls and visits coming.

Joyce sent me an update about our dear friend Ed. So far, he still out of the hospital and at home,

hoping to keep it that way. Not able to walk yet, but hoping that the home therapy will correct that. You

would think that lying in bed all day and being waited on would be fun but he would much rather be out

and about making memories. Our hope is that will happen soon too.

Many of you have probably wondered what has happened to our friend Jeff Levine. We have received

this update to his current health issues. He has developed a low blood platelet count and some other

blood irregularities. The problem is ongoing and has been going on now for over a year. He has been to

Hematologist and Oncologist, had tests run but have found nothing to explain the problem. He will be on

B-12 shots and iron for a month and retested. If his blood platelets are still low they will probably do a

bone marrow biopsy. Let’s keep good thoughts for Jeff.

Received an update from Susan Walker on Del. They wanted to Thank all of their Corvette Friends for

your concern, your calls, your cards but most important your prayers. She said it really helps knowing

that there are so many in your corner. Del’s treatments are progressing and they are very hopeful. He is

strong and a fighter. She said to tell you all they miss you and again a “Big Thank you and Hugs” and they

hope to see us all soon. Thank you all,

Your Sunshine Girl, Debbie G.

10 Fun Facts About Our Flag

Flag Day, celebrated on June 14, is the perfect time to get out your flags

and show your American pride! You don’t have to wait until Independence

Day to get started; National Flag Day is a great opportunity to display the

American flag on your home. You will also see the flag proudly displayed

on all government buildings during the week of June 14. You may even hear

of a parade in your city or other events that will honor the American flag.

Fun Facts

The American flag has played a big part in the lives of Americans. We have

grown up admiring the flag and learning about the flag in school. We have

seen it displayed on holidays such as Memorial Day and Independence Day.

The flag is very important in American culture, but it’s easy to forget all of

the interesting facts of how the American flag came to be.

In honor of Flag Day, here is a list of 10 fun facts about the American flag

and the history of Flag Day. After you read these fun facts, check out 10

myths about the American flag too!


1. Congress adopted the Stars and Stripes as the American flag on June

14, 1777.

2. For a while, the U.S. added stripes and stars to the flag when

welcoming new states. At one point, the flag has 15 stripes and 15

stars. As the country continued to add new states, they decided to go

back to the 13 stripes for the original 13 colonies.

3. The colors of the flag have important meanings. Red symbolizes

hardiness and valor, white symbolizes purity and innocence and blue

represents vigilance, perseverance and justice.

4. The first Flag Day observance was on June 14, 1885, when 19-yearold

school teacher Bernard J. Cigrand placed a 38-inch star flag in a

bottle on his desk. He assigned essays about the flag and its

significance.

5. In 1894, the governor of New York directed that the flag be displayed

on all public buildings on June 14.

6. On May 30, 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a presidential

proclamation establishing Flag Day as the anniversary of the Flag

Resolution.

7. On August 3, 1949, President Truman signed an Act of Congress that

would designate June 14 of each year as National Flag Day.

8. When the flag can no longer be repaired or used, it must be destroyed

in a dignified matter, such as a burning cermony.

9. If dirty or soiled, an American flag may be washed and dry cleaned.

10. If a flag touches the ground, it does not have to be destroyed. Instead,

just wash it if it’s dirty.

It may have taken a while to officially declare June 14 as Flag Day, but

now that it’s a reserved holiday, take your American flag out and wash

it if you have to. Make sure you show your American pride on June 14!
