2012 Ceremony features:

– Rifle salute by Inner-Tribal Warrior Society
– Taps performed by Nick Terwilliger, Yelm High School Sophomore

The Yelm Parks Advisory Committee held their first Flag Day ceremony in 2011.

Ed. Note:
This writer found amazing that the Mayor & Yelm City Council did not know the date and incorrectly listed the time of Yelm’s Flag Day ceremony at the Yelm City Council meeting last night. Mayor Harding said he will be at JBLM, yet should have directed his Pro-tem to be at the Yelm ceremony, which is sponsored by the city’s own citizen committee!

I am beginning to wonder about the competency of Yelm city leaders.
