2017 – Looking at Flag Day Envelope Cachets
On this Flag Day 2017, my letter writing-themed blog topic today finds me taking inspiration from Looking at Flag Day Envelope Cachets. One of them is from the Postal History Foundation (phftucson) Tucson, Arizona and two are from the Naval Cover Museum.
One of our friends will be getting to see one of their friends participate in their Naturalization Ceremony today. In looking around I’m seeing an article about Naturalization Ceremony and Flag Day Celebration planned for today in Somerville, NJ.
Locally over in Southport, they will be continuing their tradition of holding a Naturalization Ceremony during the upcoming N.C. 4th of July Festival Southport.

Perhaps today you will be inspired to create your own Flag Day envelope cachet and take it to your Post Office to have it canceled!
If you decide to do that please send a copy to me and we can look at including it in next year’s Flag Day blog post here!
Happy Flag Day 2017! For our new citizens, Welcome!
