A flag day celebration and a get together of school kids from Cliff, Chebeague, Long and Peaks. The Fifth Maine Regiment Museum and the Island Institute sponsored the gathering with major thanks to the principal of Peaks (Barbara Hoppins) for coordinating the event. The children had made flags ahead of time which shared facts about their island. They broke up into small multiage, multi island groups to share their flags as a get to know one another activity. Lunch tables were by regiments (5th) 4th, 3rd etc and the afternoon was a history lesson from the Fifth Maine Regiment's curator and then all broke out again for a scavenger hunt of historical questions. Ride to Peaks was on the Island Romance, home on the new Aucocisco III.
