This year, Mattituck American Legion Post 861 honored Flag Day by hosting a brief ceremony on Saturday, June 13, 2020. With regulations of social distancing for the community noted, planned services for Flag Day had to be altered, and members of Post 861 followed protocol using those established guidelines. Post Commander Rob DeVito provided a brief history of the flag, and presented an authentic 44-star flag from his personal collection to display for the day. A small group of post members and local residents were in attendance for the ceremony, which was held at the post's monument.
