Hidden Springs Senior Living recently received the Flag Award from the Sons of the American Revolution. The award is based on patriotic care of the American Flag.

The chapter observed that Hidden Springs met the criteria of lighting, proper half-staffing and overall care of their flag. One of the two flags used once flew above the Capital Building in Washington, D.C.

Presenting the Flag Award to Hidden Springs owner Daryl Davison was chapter SAR President Don Dusenbury, assisted by the founding Chapter President, Al White. Following the Memorial Day award ceremony, the facility's 36 residents spontaneously pledged allegiance to the flag and sang patriotic songs.

Members of the Sons of the American Revolution can trace their heritage back to a patriot who fought and died in the American Revolution. Among other activities supporting American heritage, every third year the SAR chapter presents a Flag Award to a commercial business from the area covering Winchester and Frederick, Clarke, Loudoun, Shenandoah, Page, Rappahannock and Warren counties. In other years they present to public buildings and personal residences.
