Americanism - Patti Knight

What a fabulous time for Americanism with our America First President Donald Trump! Now, more than ever, Republican women need to encourage our families and friends to fly our American flag (and a Trump 2020 flag underneath would be great). There is nothing that instills more pride in our country than seeing an American flag waving in the breeze - it says that this family honors and loves our country.

I'd like to propose that every member of our FRW groups fly an American flag, and that we encourage other Republicans in our counties to do the same. Possibly our Achievement Award list could add a "What percentage of members of your group fly an American flag?"

Need a club program? Why not have someone talk about American flags' history. The first official national flag was approved by the Continental Congress on June 14, 1777, and there have been 27 different versions of the flag featuring the stars and stripes since then. There are also many "slogan" flags which have been used thru the years. Or, of course, a program reminding members about the appropriate flying and handling of the American flag is always appreciated.
