Flags for First Graders is a program that provides a forum for discussing the history of our flag and highlights patriotism. This activity can be done at any time but most clubs give out the flags around President’s Day. Some clubs simply provide the flags to local schools but most clubs have Lions present them to the kids. Many teachers incorporate the flags as part of their education program. Most presentations are made in the Lions vest and some clubs print additional certificates for the classroom or individual child .
