The Fort McDowell Veterans Association will hold a flag raising, featuring two flags. The new tribal flag, recently adopted by the Tribe, and a U.S. flag that once flew over the U.S. Capitol, which was presented to the tribe by Senator John McCain.
President Ernie Jones, Sr., will address the audience. Tribal member Grace Sparks, who recently passed away, will be honored for her many contributions to the tribe. Members of her family will also attend. In addition, singer Harry Walker of the Fort McDowell Veterans Association will perform.
