  • St. Anne's in Ankeny holds an Annual Raising of the Flags Event where they invite each first generation family an opportunity to process the flag of their country of origin and raise it up on the nine flag poles we have situated outside in front of the church. It is truly a symbol and sign to the Ankeny Community that all are welcome. We also present to each family and person who receives their American citizenship an American Flag to celebrate their success. The Scouts and especially our former Eagle Scouts are asked to help in the raising of the American and Episcopal Flags as well.
