Commanders Call

FlagRaising83rd Annual breakfast and flag raising

NOTE:  Thank you everyone for making this event possible.  We had a good turnout, followed by the services at 5 cemeteries.

Veterans are invited to a free breakfast and flag raising ceremony on Memorial Day, May 30, 7 a.m. at the Christ Dunberger Post on Pickle and Wynn roads in Oregon.

The East Toledo Club is sponsoring the event for the 83rd consecutive year. The first flag raising was held in 1933 at Pearson Park, which was the site for more than 75 years. In recent years, the club has partnered with the Dunberger Post to honor the men and women who have served our country.

Veterans do not have to belong to a post to attend. The ceremony starts with the honor guard raising the flag at 7 a.m. followed by the playing of Taps. Breakfast is served at 7:30.
