Va Flaggers: Flagging Lexington 2014: Lest We Forget!
In September of 2011, the City Council of Lexington, VA voted to ban ALL flags from the flag stands on city light poles, rather than allow the Sons of Confederate Veterans to display the flags of Lee and Jackson on the flag stands for the week leading up to the Virginia State Lee-Jackson Holiday.
As we have done each January since, the Va Flaggers invite ALL to join us as we head to Lexington for the Virginia State Lee-Jackson Holiday, Friday, January 17th, 2014. We will spend the day on the sidewalks of Lexington, forwarding the colors, honoring our Confederate heroes…and showing town officials that their actions will not be forgotten!
Plan to meet at Stonewall Jackson Cemetery Friday, January 17th at 10:00 a.m. to receive literature, instruction, and maps. We will be flagging all day. Lunch on your own (OUTSIDE of Lexington). Supper together at 5:30 (location TBD – OUTSIDE of Lexington) and back to town for a Confederate Picture show after dark. 😉
Saturday, we will attend the memorial service at Stonewall Jackson Cemetery (meet at Cemetery at 9:30 a.m.) and then march as a unit in the parade (11:15 a.m.), and attend the RE Lee Memorial Service (12:00 p.m.) at Lee Chapel. Lunch (OUTSIDE of Lexington) and then back to town for MORE FLAGGING!
ALL Confederates are welcome to join us in the parade or ANY or all of the activities! All that is required is a Confederate flag, a desire to honor our ancestors… and a smile!
Hotel reservations (OUTSIDE of Lexington) can be made at a discount using the rates negotiated by the Stonewall Brigade. Reservations need to be made by January 3rd to receive the discount. Details here: http://leejacksonday.webs.com/lodgingsponsors.htm
