Veterans talk flag history, etiquette with Polk Central fourth graders

Johnny and Gerry Taylor from the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) recently visited Polk Central Elementary to share the history of the United States flag with a small group of fourth grade students.

The fourth graders are the school’s Peer Leaders in charge of maintaining the flag.

The group talked about flag trivia and had a demonstration of proper flag folding etiquette. Each student also received a small individual flag.
