Several Cadiz and Trigg County residents made it to a Flag Day ceremony, held Thursday morning at a new flag pole at Main Street and U.S. 68/Ky. 80.

“This flag … represents and symbolizes certain rights and privileges and freedoms that we all share together,” said Trigg County Judge Executive Stan Humphries. “We all have our differences … but this ties and binds us together.”

Local Boy Scouts and representatives from the Woodmen of the World Lodge No. 20 of Cadiz raised the flag during the ceremony. The Woodmen of the World put the new flag pole up very recently, and have been sponsoring Flag Day programs for more than 60 years.

Linda Caldwell led most of the program with poems and remembrance readings. Sandra Myers said it’s important to remember the country’s fallen soldiers. Similarly, Willie Wilson talked about how the flag stands for the soldiers who have fought for our freedoms for so long.

“I challenge each of you to never let this day go by without remembering the flag,” said Wilson.
