Last Thursday's Flag Day celebration in Glenview's Jackman Park included a dignified tribune to Old Glory by veterans, Scouts and the Knights of Columbus.
Veterans from Glenview American Legion Post 166, scouts including Boy Scout Troop 175 from St. John Brebeuf Church in Niles and a Knights of Columbus unit gathered Thursday in Glenview's Jackman Park for a Flag Day ceremony. After a dignified procession and a speech hailing Old Glory, Scouts lowered the flag from a flagpole and marched to an official, who placed it in burning flames according to flag etiquette. Veterans then offered a shotgun salute. See it all in the photo and video gallery.
