Covenant Place of Lenexa receives flag flown over United States Capitol

Lenexa, KS, March 27, 2015 – Covenant Place of Lenexa Retirement, A Covenant Retirement Community has received a flag that was flown over the United States Capitol building in Washington D.C. There was a flag raising ceremony on March 27th, Friday at 2:00 p.m. coordinated by Dennis Branson, US Coast Guard Retired.

The ceremony was a commissioning ceremony for Covenant Place of Lenexa’s three new flag poles.

A state of Kansas flag and a Christian flag will be flown on the remaining two poles. During the ceremony, four of Covenant Place of Lenexa’s residents gave brief statements about each flag.

“Covenant Place of Lenexa is honored to fly a flag that has flown over the Capitol” said Courtney O’Connor, Executive Director. “As we see the flag flying each day, we will remember the sacrifices made by our armed forces for this great country.”
