sponsoring their 80th annual Grafton Village Firemen’s Festival. Nathan Manning, District 55 Representative, was
in attendance at the festival to present the commendation. Teens 13-17 years old can get one teen library card and

turn them to us and we process the applications and take teen
cards to the schools to give to the students who completed the

The Pledge of Allegiance
“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Republic
for which it stands, one Nation under God, Indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
The Pledge of Allegiance received ofﬁcial recognition by Congress in an Act approved on June
22, 1942. However, the pledge was ﬁrst published in 1892 in the Youth’s Companion magazine
in Boston, Massachusetts to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the discovery of America, and
was ﬁrst used in public schools to celebrate Columbus Day on October 12, 1892.
In its original version, the pledge read “my ﬂag” instead of “the ﬂag of the United States.” The
change in the wording was adopted by the National Flag Conference in 1923. The rationale for
the change was that it prevented ambiguity among foreign-born children and adults who might
have the ﬂag of their native land in mind when reciting the pledge.
The phrase “under God” was added to the pledge by a Congressional act approved on June 14,
1954. At that time, President Eisenhower said:
“in this way we are reafﬁrming the transcendence of religious faith in America’s heritage and
future; in this way we shall constantly strengthen those spiritual weapons which forever will be
our country’s most powerful resource in peace and war.”
