Flag Raising at the Meyers House

Celebrate Sunday August 17, 2-3:30PM at the historic Meyers House and Garden, 2021 Alameda Avenue, where a rejuvenated 19th century flagpole will be inaugurated and local Boy Scouts will be honored.

flagsThe Colonial Revival home is owned and operated by the Alameda Museum, whose curator, George Gunn, and board members have embarked on a capital campaign to underwrite much needed preservation, maintenance and upgrading. Their current project is to save the original carriage house, which will be open for hard-hat tours that day. See for yourself how near the structure is to collapsing and please bring cash or your checkbook.

The Boy Scouts of Troop 78 will raise the flag at 2:30PM. Then light refreshments in the Victorian manner will be served, in keeping with the 1897 vintage of the house and accompanied by rousing patriotic and toe-tapping tunes. This gala is a good time to trot out your vintage clothing!
