Independence Day Ceremony

The Town of Greenwich celebrated another Fourth of July on a perfect day for Patriots and flags!  Almost 600 people joined near the steps of Town Hall to watch Greenwich Boy Scouts present the 13 colonial flags, the raising of the Betsy Ross flag by the Boys and Girls Club Honor Guard, a reading about the flag by two representatives of the Arch Street Teen Center, The Children of the American Revolution leading the Pledge of Allegiance, and selected readings from the Declaration of Independence by Greenwich Girl Scouts and Greenwich Boy Scouts.  Below is the moment of the raising of the flag:

The founding family of Greenwich and the descendants of Elizabeth Feake were honored during the ceremony. On the steps are 15 Feake family members, including Mary Ellen LeBien at the podium, who came to the ceremony and shared Feake-Hallet family history.

Bea Crumbine received an American flag which had flown over the Capitol in Washington D.C. as thanks for her work as Founder and Chairman of the Independence Day Association for 13 years.  First Selectman Peter Tesei and Senator Richard Blumenthal created a wonderful surprise!
