The Virginia Flaggers will celebrate our FIFTH anniversary, and the THREE YEAR anniversary of the raising of the first I-95 flag in Chester, with a family picnic and auction on Sunday, September 25th, at the picnic pavilion of the Mechanicsville Moose Lodge.

The fun starts at 3:00 pm, with live (acoustic) music and time for fun and fellowship. Supper will be served at 5:30, followed by a live auction at 6:30, with the opportunity to bid on the first 10 x 15 Confederate Battle Flag that flew at the First Memorial Battle Flag site, among many other valuable items

*NEW THIS YEAR! Little Rebels Boot Camp! Kids...Join the Confederate Army and visit a Confederate Encampment. Learn about what the soldiers ate, where they slept, how they marched, and of course, ALL about their flags! All those who enlist and muster out will receive a certificate and Confederate goodies!

Raffle prize drawings and a silent auction for smaller items will also take place throughout the afternoon.

The Va Flaggers will provide BBQ and all the fixins, soft drinks, iced tea, and lemonade. Guests and attendees are asked to bring side dishes/desserts of their choosing to share.

Whether you are a core Flagger, one of our many supporters, one who is interested in learning more about the Va Flaggers, or simply would like the chance to bid on some beautiful Confederate items, you are welcome to join us in the celebration, as we look back at our first four years...and share our vision and plans for the future.

PLEASE RSVP as soon as possible and let us know if you plan to attend, by email at info@vaflaggers.com

We are also accepting gifts of (Confederate) items for the door prizes and silent and/or live auction and welcome and appreciate your support. This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and all proceeds go toward the construction and maintenance of our Memorial Battle Flag projects!

**This is a family event. Alcoholic beverages are prohibited.**
