(June 13, 2012) Give three cheers for the red, white and blue during Frisco Flag Day happening Thursday, June 14. The ceremony begins at 10 a.m. inside the Frisco Heritage Center Depot, located at 6499 Page St. The Frisco Fire Department Honor Guard and other special guests will be part of the ceremony, including U.S. Rep. Sam Johnson, who is co-hosting the event.
