Norwich to mark Haitian Flag Day with simple ceremony Monday
Norwich — A muted celebration of Haitian Flag Day will take place Monday, starting with a morning raising of the Haitian flag in the plaza outside City Hall and an evening proclamation to be read by the City Council at its remote-access meeting broadcast.
Norwich Free Academy Haitian American students Allen and Alexander Dufort, recipients of the Martin Luther King scholarship, Norwich Alderman Derell Wilson and Haitian American Enock Petit-Home will participate in the 9:30 a.m. flag-raising ceremony. Global City Norwich, which has hosted Haitian festivals in downtown, is coordinating the program.
The proclamation, included as part of the City Council meeting agenda, will be read at the start of the 7:30 p.m. council meeting, to be broadcast on Comcast Channel 97 or by livestream on the city’s website, norwichct.org.
