The “I Pledge Allegiance” Challenge Becomes Patriotic Gesture
On June 11th, The Buffalo & Erie County Naval & Military Park held a very successful event that was patriotic too. The “I Pledge Allegiance” Challenge drew over 500 people. Any child aged 12 or under who could recite the Pledge of Allegiance from memory won a free Perry’s Ice Cream treat, a free American flag from Ace Flag, and free admission to the Naval Park.
Peter Roe, managing partner of Ace Flag Co., provided a talk on the fantail of the USS Little Rock on the history of the American flag. As the photos showed, parents joined in on the fun as they pledged along with their children in a very patriotic gesture.
