Each year, close to Presidents day, the West Linn Club sponsor a flag day for the 1st graders in the West Linn Elementary schools so children can gain insight into what our American Flag means. The West Linn Lions Club present small flags with bases and information pamphlets up to 300 1st and 2nd graders at Bolton, Cedar Oak, and Sunset Primary, Stafford Primary School. Willamette and Trillium Creek Primary schools have elected not to participate.

The presentation lasts 30 min maximum as requested by schools and includes:
