On June 14, Tallahassee Elks Lodge held its Flag Day ceremony, which was open to the public. Bryce Thornton, on the left, is pictured with Jeff Dorband, Exalted Ruler. Thornton was the guest speaker and spoke about the importance and symbolism of the flag to him as a World War II veteran. He added that it was 79 years ago June 14 that he joined the Army. He is now 97 years old, is a 44-year lodge member and has been a life member since October 2009.
