Flag Folding Ceremony at Oak Park Place, 718 Jupiter Drive

  • Oak Park Place 718 Jupiter Drive Madison, WI, 53718 (map)

In recognition of those who have served, especially in times of conflict, our American Legion Post 501 conducts a flag folding ceremony at several Madison retirement homes on this special day - the 11th of November.  This much appreciated service is for those who can no longer attend the more formal programs conducted at our state capital.  Readings are performed while the American flag is properly folded.  We need at least 6 Legionnaires to assist, if you haven't yet participated, rest assured that we will share the procedures.  Attire including the Legion Cap, white shirt with tie, and dark trousers, preferably grey, is the uniform.  White gloves are provided. Any Legionnaire can be a part of this impressive ceremony.  Sign up today on the "Contact Us" tab in this website, or let any of the members know of your interest.
