Flag Day Monument Groundbreaking June 14
The Fox Valley Patriotic Organization (FVPO) and the Batavia Flag Day Committee are busy planning for Flag Day this year. On June 14, 2022, the groundbreaking for the Flag Day Monument will be held on the Riverwalk in downtown Batavia. Please put this date on your calendars, and plan to come see what this phenomenal national-caliber salute to Old Glory will look like. The evening festivities will start at 5:45 with some patriotic arrangements by the Batavia Community Band. The program will be held from 6:00-7:00pm which will include turning up the first shovels of dirt for the monument. Thank you for your patience, Batavia! We are thrilled to finally be able to start the building of this beautiful tribute to the American flag.
Another FVPO fundraising event this year to get us across the finish line in the building of our Flag Day Monument will be held on Wednesday, September 14—a wonderful day outdoors at the Max McGraw Wildlife Foundation in Dundee Township for clay shooting, and a fabulous auction hosted by Ramblin’ Ray Stevens from WLS Radio. This event will be great entertainment for a great cause! If you are interested in being a sponsor or in donating any raffle prizes for this event, please contact Joanne at firstname.lastname@example.org
