Student Council: Kids Night Out

The Student Council at Timberlane Regional High School held its annual Kids Night Out in the school cafeteria and gymnasium. Student council members offered many activities with youngsters including sports, arts and crafts, board games, a movie corner, and more. The event gave moms and dads (and grandparents too) an opportunity to go to dinner or do errands, knowing that their children were safe and in good hands. (Larry Kennedy/CTN photo)

National Flag Day

The tradition of the first Flag Day observance...On June 14, 1885, Bernard J. Cigrand, a 19-year old teacher at Stony Hill School, placed a ten-inch, thirty-eight star flag in a bottle on his desk then assigned essays on the flag and its significance. This observance commemorated Congresses adoption of the Stars and Stripes, as the flag of the United States on June 14, 1777. National Flag Day was signed into law by president Harry Truman in 1949; the legislation also called upon the President to issue a Flag Day proclamation every year. (Larry Kennedy/CTN photo)
