Leading up to Fourth of July, many Americans celebrate our freedom by flying the red, white and blue. If you are looking to purchase a new flag this year, American Heritage is partnering with Mercy Health Foundation to donate five percent of all flag sales to Mercy Children’s Hospital from June 20 through July 3.
On July 3, American Heritage will host a picnic from noon to 3 p.m. at 11062 Olive Blvd., in Creve Coeur. Enjoy hot dogs, drinks, face painting and enter a raffle drawing to win an American flag set.
