Annual Flag Raising Ceremony in Austin Park


Clearlake, CA – May 15th, 2018

On May 15th a nice crowd gathered in Austin Park for the annual tradition of raising the large American flag donated by the Park Study Club. Burns Valley School second graders joined members of the Park Study Club, Lake County Fire Protection District, Clearlake Police Department, Clearlake Public Works Department, as well as Clearlake City Councilmembers and Planning Commissioners, and members of the public in keeping the over-sized flag from touching the ground. Once the flag was raised, in honor of Peace Officers Memorial Day the flag was lowered to half-staff for the day.

“The raising of the flag in Austin Park is really a fun tradition that we have every year,” said City Manager, Greg Folsom. “The kids from Burns Valley School come out and do a great job of holding up the flag and learning flag etiquette and respect. Big thank you to the Park Study Club for once again donating the flag.”
