The Belfast Historical Society & Museum invites the public to a Flag Day celebration to be held 4-7 p.m. Friday, June 14, at the Abbott Room, Belfast Free Library, 106 High St. The 1864 Belfast Civil War Flag Quilt, sewn 149 years ago by the Ladies Aid Society of First Church, will be displayed for the first time since undergoing conservation. The Friendship Sampler Quilters have created a replica of the 1864 quilt and invite those attending the program to add a few stitches of their own. The program is free and open to the public.
