ORANGE...Ninety nine children from twenty eight countries and seven continents became the newest U.S. citizens in a Flag Day ceremony at the Richard Nixon Presential Library and Museum.

 

These ninety nine are children are receiving a Certificate of Citizenship that serves as evidence that they are U.S. citizens. They were born abroad and are claiming U.S. citizenship through their parents. Before the ceremony, a slide show pictured some the United States landmarks with comments from other new citizens. An American flag was given to each person and Orange Elks member Bob Doberneck read a history of the flag.

 

While Bob read the history, the children waved their flags.

The ceremony ended with a message from President Donald Trump, Lee Greenwood singing God Bless the USA and the children receiving their Certificates of Citizenship. Photos:OrangeElks
