Here in Grants Pass, the American Legion is having an Open House to celebrate Flag Day from 2pm-5pm today. They are located at 206 NW F Street. Why do we celebrate Flag Day, you ask? Well here are 10 interesting facts that will help you understand why from Fox. One very interesting fact on this site tells us that the Pledge of Allegiance was not written for Flag Day, but for Columbus Day, which in our state of Oregon no longer exists because it was renamed Indigenous Peoples Day by the Senate this past May. Strange times, these are. We at Paragon Orthopedic Center honor our nation’s flag and, taking one day at a time, hope you’ll take a moment to learn something new about today’s celebration.
