The Quebec flag
The Quebec flag will be raised on Friday, June 23, 2018 since the feast of St-John the Baptiste is on Saturday, June 24th this year.
This will take place at 8:30 a.m. on June 23rd on the lawn of the state Capitol, on Capitol Avenue in Hartford. The flag will fly at the Capitol Dome on June 24th as well.
There will be a few speeches after the raising of the Quebec flag, followed by breakfast in the cafeteria at your own expense at the State Legislative Office Building on Capitol Avenue next to the Capitol.
Parking is free in the garage behind the Legislative Office Building, which is on Capitol Avenue between the State Armory (corner of Broad Street and Capitol Avenue) and the Capitol. Take the elevator to the third floor in the garage to go to the ground level of the Capitol.
There will be chairs available for those attending. We do need to know approximately how many people will be attending in order to reserve them. Please let me know at (860-644-1125) by June 15, 2018.
