At high noon in the Village Green this Sunday, April 13 – which happens to be Thomas Jefferson’s birthday – Honorary Mayor Jake Steinfeld will present flag contest winners Sean Lim and Will Dintenfass with a giant flag-sized check for $1,000. An additional $1,000 is being given to a charity of their choice.
They will then unveil and raise our brand new Pacific Palisades flag with the help of our brave local firefighters.
Our new flag will fly just below the American flag, and the crowd will salute them both by singing “You’re A Grand Old Flag” followed by “You’re A Brand New Flag,” an original composition being created just for the Palisades flag.
The Pacific Palisades Oom Pa Pa Band will be performing, and it includes Sean Lim’s sister Lynn Lim who plays the flute and will be flying in from New York just for this ceremony. Other various luminaries are expected to attend.
All Palisadians are invited to this historic and entertaining ceremony. If you’ve got a uniform or costume, please wear it.
