The West Seattle Junction Association‘s flags are out, we noticed while going through “Downtown West Seattle” a bit earlier – that’s one of two Flag Day notes we are sharing; second one came in right about the same time we photographed the Junction flags – it’s from American Legion Post 160 Commander Kyle Geraghty:

A brief ceremony observing Flag Day will be held in front of the West Seattle American Legion Post 160 at 7 pm, located at 3618 SW Alaska.

All Veterans, family members of Veterans, and community members are invited to attend.

If you have a soiled, faded, or torn American flag, this would be a perfect opportunity to drop it off so it can be disposed of properly.

After the ceremony, the West Seattle American Legion Post 160 will observe the 238th birthday of the United States Army with song and light refreshments.

ADDED 11:36 PM: Providence Mount St. Vincent had its own take on Flag Day:

Special-events director Anna Cronin shared the photo, explaining, “Providence Mount St. Vincent closed employee appreciation week with a Flag Day celebration, honoring employees’ more than 51 countries of origin. With approximately 500 employees, The Mount is the largest employer in West Seattle, and very proud of the hard-working, diverse staff. The flags will be placed around The Mount campus to proudly celebrate and honor staff throughout the summer.”
